Francis Bebey - Akwaaba (1985)


In this 1985 release, composer/guitarist/singer/author Bebey used finger-piano, African flute, percussion and electric bass to draw on the whole range of African music today: traditional vocal styles (including an extraordinary "double-voice" technique), Ghanaian flute, soukous basslines. The Boston Herald called Akwaaba "one of the most amazing and beautiful records I have ever heard."
