SK Kakraba
Songs of Paapieye

SK Kakraba plays a Ghanaian xylophone called the gyil, and Songs Of Paapieye gives us the instrument pure and unaccompanied. There is a welcome buzz to the tone that will be familiar to Konono No. 1 fans, and an inventiveness to Kakraba’s versions of traditional and original tunes that will be welcome to those who like joy. On Awesome Tapes From Africa.

SK Kakraba
Yonye

SK Kakraba is part of a mighty lineage of Ghanaian Gyil players; the Gyil being a kind of xylophone. Yonye is a fantastic collection of solo recordings, the buzzing sound of the instrument giving the traditional songs an almost electric tang to them. Plenty of life and energy in this record, which is out on Sun Ark.
