Akwaboa's Band - Fidie Wura


Fidie Wura by Akwaboa's Band is a beautiful, laid-back gem of an album.  The songs featured on this record are smooth and effortless, with rootsy harmonies, acoustic guitar playing, and singing characteristic of traditional Akan music and palm wine highlife.  All of Akwaboa's recordings are excellent, but this album really wonderfully demonstrates the intimate relationships which exist between electric guitar-band highlife, palm wine, and traditional Akan music.  And what a great album cover too!

 Enjoy!

    Mediafire seems to work just fine for me. Give the download another try, I think.

  3. Thanks for all the great shares. This is a treasure trove thanks to your hard work.

    By the way, what year was this one released?

  4. Thanks for your comments. Unfortunately a date is not printed on this record's sleeve/label, which seems to be the case for many West African albums. This one was likely released sometime during the 1970s.
