info 

In the summer of 2017 Francis Ayamga, drummer in King Ayisoba’s band, came with a penn-drive filled with music he recorded over the last couple of years in his studio in Bongo, in the North of Ghana. He found a lot of fantastic music from local artists hardly anyone knows. Most of the songs are sung in Frafra, the language of the region. Makkum Records decided to make a compilation, and made a selection from more than two hundred tracks and in Januari 2018 traveled to Bongo to meet the musicians, interview them, make video’s and take pictures. Recorded the whole Zenabu women group outside the small studio with one microphone since they did not fit inside. It became a wonderful overview of the local music scene in Bongo, the village King Ayisoba is originally from.
