Official, remastered reissue of this disco tinged, afro funk treasure and the first time the °∆Karam Bani°« single has been cut to 12°… – maximising every ounce of highlife soul from Sidiku Buari°«s productions. That undeniable US funk flavour coupled with Buari°«s Ghanaian rhythms bring a zest to these grooves even the tangiest of forbidden fruits couldn°«t draw out. Those fuzzed keys and dusty highlife guitar licks sprinkle the West African flavour, whilst drumming demi-god Bernard Purdie provides the wizardry behind the infectious, yet precision like beats that make the track so unique. Purdie°«s killer breaks combined with Buari°«s jubilant vocals give a spirituality to this cut that°«ll liven up any dancefloor - alongside being a gold mine for samples. Flip it over and you°«re hit with the joy filled jam, °∆Ye Koaba°«. Tribal drums lead the way for a chorus of jubilant chants supplemented by glistening synth sounds and funk fuelled guitar riffs. It°«s a feel-good slice of Ghanaian sunshine, capturing that community spirit and good-hearted nature Ghana°«s famous for. Two afro funk sensations sure to put a smile on your face, even when the skies are grey and you°«re 5000 miles away from the glorious West African coastline.
