Video: Bola 'Tigantabame'


Awesome Tapes From Africa's second release as a newly formed label will be a reprint of northern Ghanaian singer/multi-instrumentalist Bola‘s casette Volume 7. The tracks feature soul vocals and kologo plucks from Bola backed by drum machines and synthesizers. The basically inexplicable music video for "Tigantabame" features goat-stealing, checker-outfitted dancing and possible juju. Watch it above, stream previous single "Abayetidu Ma" below. Pre-order Bola's Volume 7, out 4/3.
