In the 1970s, Ghanian musician K. Frimpong recorded with two different bands; ‘Vis-A-Vis’ and ‘Cubano Fiestas’. Kyenkyen Bi Adi M'awu fuses heavy afrobeat drums and horns with a highlife guitar line and is his most well known track. Taken from the legendary ‘K. Frimpong & His Cubano Fiestas’ LP released in 1977 on Continental Records out of Ghana. Licensed from Ofo brothers, a Ghanian independent. As sampled by Gnarls Barkley on his ‘Storm Coming’ track.

Taken from Ebo’s self titled LP released on Esibons in 1977, original copies of which regularly fetches upwards of $500, we have 'Heaven' on the flip. Ebo still tours extensively with his incredible band; their performances come very highly recommended.
