Best of the West – Various Artists Part One

Best of the West, front

Some time ago I received an email from Joshua Brill from
Stamp the Wax.
He asked me to make a compilation of West African music
for his webzine and so I did. I picked some of the finest
Ghanaian highlifes available, off course I am posting it for
you as well. Get it & spread it as usual, enjoy..

Off course Ghana is just one country, Ngoni is right about that.
comps with highlights from the other West African countries
will follow..


1 Ashanti Brothers Band – Kill me and fly
2 African Brothers Band – Yaa amanua 2
3 Master Bob Akwaboah – Mame
4 Lucky Boys International Band of Ghana – Afua nyama saman pa
5 Dr. Paa Bobo International Band of Ghana – Ehye wo bo
6 Okukuseku International Band of Ghana – Any trouble
7 City Boys Band – Nya asem hwe
8 Kyeremateng Atwede & Kyeremateng Stars – Su su ka
9 King Onyina – Akwantu mu nsem
10 Nana Ampadu’s African Brothers Band International – Aketenkye
11 K.K.’s No. 2 – Tua na woho nkom
12 Opambuo Intenational Band of Ghana – Hu anim ase nkyene

    Thanks, Moos!<br />I especially like the Lucky Boys. Perhaps a complete album at a later time?

    Sorry Moos.<br />Maybe, Best of Gold Coast, but not Best of the West. <br /><br />West Africa is much more.

    So true Ngoni, but it is if you consider this part one. You are absolutely right off course, the West is much much more..

    Nice, Moos. I&#39;m especially fond of K.K.&#39;s No. 2 Band, but the whole collection is a great one.

    Thank you Moos, Ghana is truly the best of the west … i have heard Ghanaian bands like vis-a-vis, opambuo internationals, city boys etc migrate to nigeria, cote d&#39;ivoire and other west african countries to mimic their highlife pieces &amp; the outcome was great but i can say less of the other way round
