Outraegously good compilation of super-rare Ghana Funk!!!

Levels of interest in this outstanding era of West African music are higher than ever following the exceptional work of labels such as Soundway, Analog Africa, Strut, Honest Jon's and Otrabanda. This excellent compilation provides further proof of the sheer depth of quality of music coming out of post-independence Ghana!

Influenced by Western funk and rock heavyweights such as James Brown and Jimi Hendrix, the music combines traditional african chanting, drumming and percussion with funky horn sections, groovy basslines, organ and wah wah guitars! All Killers no fillers on this ace compilation! Highly Recommended!
