K. Frimpong & His Cubano Fiestas - Kyenkyen Bi Adi M'awu
Ghanian musician K. Frimpong. In the 1970s, he 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.
Ebo Taylor - Heaven
We have released two Ebo Taylor albums on Mr Bongo and thought it was time to get the almighty classic ‘Heaven’ out on a 7”. Taken from Ebo’s self titled LP released on Esibons in 1977, original copies of which regularly fetches upwards of $500. Ebo still tours extensively with his incredible band; their performances come very highly recommended.
