Alhaji Yaya Zakori – Fushien Kububua

So this is part-whatever in my ongoing obsession with music from northern Ghana. After a long while of admiring this tape I only just (like a few moments ago) realized this guy is probably the same as this gentlemen of an earlier post, with a slightly tweaked spelling. Do you see a resemblance? Looks kinda like the same guy, only on this cover he is wearing a hounds tooth shirt (instead of the cool jacket) with a tape cover design spiked with Islam green. Whatever the case, this to me sounds like nothing short of a thump-y beat trance manifesto in lo-fi.

Cool Places Sound System meets Awesome Tapes from Africa inna Zebulon style this Friday, December 11. Special guest DJ to boot.

Hey, great tape, I finally got to it and really enjoy it! Thanks.

I noticed that there are only four tracks on each side. I don’t speak the language but listened closely and it seems that for each side it’s the first three tracks listed, and then the first track on each side repeats to make four.

Thanks again!

more NOT SPAM regarding Zakori/Zakari


Speaking of Zakari, I finally finished making a test of slowing-down the songs. I got inspired by a Robert Johnson post over at Global Groovers, and started experimenting with Seidi Alama. Less 9% seemed perfect, so I just applied that to all songs, without any individual fiddling. Hope at least one person downloads it AND enjoys it… Abin Dunia was always my favorite tape, and now it sounds like a whole new tape that I’ve never even heard before! Thank you, Mr. Awesome Tapes Dude for posting it in the first place. I remember you said you were cool with the idea of my experiment. Its not to take anything away from you, b.c without you I wouldn’t even have been having so much fun with it!
