This Is Frafra Power: New Music From Bongo, Bolgatanga, Ghana — Upper East Region

This Is Frafra is a collection of music sourced and recorded by Francis Ayamga (that’s King Ayisoba’s drummer) in his studio in northern Ghana. It is therefore a snapshot of a group of artists that few outside the region will have heard before, so what a fine resource this is. Vivid and exciting and intimate music. Released on Makkum with the assistance of The Ex’s Arnold de Boer.

King Ayisoba
Wicked Leaders

Ghanaian musician King Ayisoba speaks truth to power on his incendiary fourth LP. Ayisoba is the sun around which Wicked Leaders revolves, a hugely charismatic presence up-front who is blessed with a voice so piercing it could cut metal. Leading his group with vocals and kologo (a two-string instrument similar to a guitar) in a sound that blends the Dagaaba and Frafra styles, Ayisoba’s revolutionary fervour carries this record of ramshackle protest songs.
