The Dzadzeloi – Two Paddy Follow One Girl,Agoro Records

The Dzadzeloi, front, cd size

“Alternating between the different rhythmic forms of the
Dagomba, the Ashiko and the Otofo, the Dzadzeloi ( ‘bards’ )
combine dexterous drumming and harmonious singing, using
epigrams and platitudes as the basis of their songs.”
( backsleeve )

“Another initiative came in the Ga Cultural Revival spearheaded
by the neotraditional cultural troupe ‘Wolumei’ ( Ga for ‘Fetish Priest’ )
– to encourage pop-minded young people “to forget foreign music
and do their own thing”, in the words of leader Nii Ashitei. They toured
with Kwaa Mensah and were soon followed by other Ga bands such as
Dzadzeloi, Blemabii, Abladei and Suku Troupe.”
