Ata Kak — Obaa Sima

The song is called “Moma Yendodo”.

You may never hear anything like this elsewhere.

I bought this on the street from a guy selling tapes displayed on one of those big, vertical wooden racks in Cape Coast, Ghana.

No one I know in Ghana listens to this frenetic leftfield rap madness.

 

This is it.

Actually, the first one that works (from the bottom) is Daouda Dembele El Hadji Sekou Oumar Vol. 1 (which is brilliant..!!).
