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 Buaris productions.
That undeniable US funk flavour coupled with Buaris Ghanaian rhythms bring a zest to these grooves even the tangiest of forbidden fruits couldnt 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. Purdies killer breaks combined with Buaris jubilant vocals give a spirituality to this cut thatll liven up any dancefloor – alongside being a gold mine for samples.
Flip it over and youre 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. Its a feel-good slice of Ghanaian sunshine, capturing that community spirit and good-hearted nature Ghanas famous for.
Two afro funk sensations sure to put a smile on your face, even when the skies are grey and youre 5000 miles away from the glorious West African coastline.More Like Buari - Karam Bani
