Noble Adu Kwasi & his Sweet Sound
International Band of Ghana, Star / Shakara Music

Noble Adu Kwasi, front

On the web I saw them call this soukous highlife, the highlife
side is dominant for my account. Today Ghana plays it’s
second game at the world championships and this one is
meant to support them. With Germany as their opponent I
guess they can use some extra backwind. Guitar and
organ go hand in hand on this lp and the sound is, part
from some minor crackle, fresh and clean. Horn
arrangements and vocals round up the atmosphere.
Most of their albums are produced in Abidjan, Cote
d’Ivoire, as was this one and I’m not sure if they
were stationed there as well. When listening,
don’t know about you but
I couldn’t keep still..
