Onyame Nkrabea Nwomkro

Breguo—Onyame Nkrabea Nwomkro

If it weren’t for brisk cutlass (machete) business in the fields and forests of central Ghana, this tape might not have been made. The Addai Cutlass business helped do a lot of Christian-related good in and around Kumasi over the years. And this series of cassettes is one of the investments into local culture and economies made by entrepreneur Paul Addai. According to the liner notes, the band was formed in 1972 and has made 9 albums “in the Christian style.” The main dance music style heard here is called Adowa, which forms the basis for tons of essential hiplife songs and lively football chants.

Looking forward to this. Last track is probably called “Abraham see Isaac” (old testament names!)
