Description

The second of his two self-titled albums released during Ghana’s music explosion of the 1970’s, K. Frimpong & His Cubano Fiestas (1977, Ofo Bros) is a celebratory and powerful follow up to the album that made them famous. Backed by the mighty Vis A Vis band (here renamed the “Cubano Fiestas”) Alhaji K. Frimpong and company create a sinuous, infectious, funky sound that once heard can’t be forgotten. This fusion of James Brown and Fela inspired rhythms with more traditional Ghanaian Highlife, despite having been created nearly 35 years ago, still sounds stunningly fresh today. Tattered original copies of the LP trade hands for hundreds of dollars.
