African Brothers Band International
led by Nana Ampadu I
Obiara Ba Nnyé
Afribros 1985

Yesterday I visited a quite small record market here in the
Netherlands. It really wasn’t much for me. Some 50 stand-
holders displayed their Stones, led Zeppelin and all of those
groups we see so often on fairs. Only one or two had a few
African records. Man how lucky can one be, I found this
awesome album with Nana Ampadu I and his African
Brothers Band International for only € 15,-. It is from
1985 and a true killer. Don’t miss it, listen ..

Gisteren heb ik een kleine platenmarkt bezocht in Utrecht.
Het was niet bijster interessant hoor. Iets van 50 standhou-
ders met hun eeuwige Stones, Led Zeppelin en andere lp’s
van groepen die we zoveel zien op dit soort marktjes. Éen
of twee hadden een paar Afrikaanse platen. Maar wat
schetste mijn verbazing, tussen die paar plaatjes vond
ik deze parel met Nana Ampadu I en zijn African
Brothers Band International uit 1985. Hij kostte
slechts € 15,- en is een top album. Luister ..

    A classic from 1985 from the late great Nana Kwame Ampadu. Many thanks for another Ghanaian classic, from the late great legend.
