The Ramblers International 1972 (45T Decca 4278)

A 45t from this famous ghanian band whom popularized the highlife all over Africa and Europe. On the A side, "rare na wokba" wich is a sweet traditionnal highlife tune. On the B side, "voa hella" which is in fact a version of an afro-cuban tune,but i can't remember wich one, I'm just sure that Eddie Palmieri used to play it whit his band... Both tunes are from 1972, on the english label Decca.

Un petit 45T de ce célèbre orchestre ghanéen qui a largement popularisé le highlife à travers toute l'Afrique. Sur la faca A "rare na wokba", un morceau de highlife plutôt traditionnel, sur la face B "voa hella" qui est une version d'un classique de la musique afro-cubaine, une guajira dont j'ai oublié le titre et dont je sais qu'Eddie Palmieri la jouait avec son orchestre dans les années 60....Bref, deux morceaux enregistrée en 1972 par le label anglais Decca.
