Record Label: Philophon
Y-Bayani (pronounced Why-Bayani) is Ghana’s uprising Fanti-reggae artist. He was discovered by Philophon in Ebo Taylor’s hometown Saltpond, where he survived as a clock doctor. With his song “Asembi Ara Amba” he was featured on the highly acclaimed debut “Invisible Joy” by the Polyversal Souls. The success of that song opened the door for his first release under his sonorous own name:Y-Bayani.
“Get Away” is a swinging up-tempo beat with a bouncy bass and a haunting vocal performance on top. “Obar No Ni” on the other hand brings you down with a slowly driving rub-a-dub beat. Both tunes have been produced by Max Weissenfeldt and Stibbo Spitzmüller at Berlin’s Joy Sound Studios.
