Wo Pe Nye Ho

Kumasi Bantama Christ Revival Singers – Wo Pe Nye Ho

This one’s for the holiday coming up. Xmas in Hawaii, by way of Kumasi, Ghana. Bantama is the neighborhood in Kumasi where I saw a street performer eat glass and make a newspaper filled with wine disappear. That was kind of spiritual. Hawaiian guitar here kills it. Womb-y bass and angelic chorus make for an all around soothing holiday gait. Just imagine that crackliness is coming from the fireplace not the old vinyl from which this tape was sourced.

These tracks really live up to the name of your blog – awesome, just awesome!

BTW, the link on Side One is lacking the “h” in “http” I had to type it in manually to get it to work.

Nice lap steel.

I will be up in New York next month for the APAP conference. Let’s get a beer……

but of course…

overall i think the design of this tape cover is very nice: lapsteel, traditional cloth, everything tilted.
