NEW: Awesome Tapes from Africa releases Ghana's Bola on iTunes / Amazon
Click to enlarge

Bola is a singer and instrumentalist from Bolgatanga, Ghana who has been putting out tape after tape of ridiculously energetic and thoughtful songs for the last few years. Brian Shimkowitz, founder and curator of Awesome Tapes from Africa, explained that he almost died when he heard this Volume 7 tape for the first time. Bola's intense Frafra-language vocals, along with his shredding kologo—a two-stringed lute—boosted by bass-heavy, angular keyboard melodies and dance floor-ready drums. “I am fascinated by Bola's take on a traditional instrument and musical style,” said Shimkowitz.  Look out for it on iTunes.
