Mam Yinne Wa

A 2 track africa single (7m 17s) — released November 11th 2016 on Philophon

Alogte Oho is the number one Frafra gospel artist from within the explosive music scene of Bolgatanga in Northern Ghana. His international debut was the 2014 single Zota Yinne (Philophon PH45002), which has already become a collectors item. Alogte Oho is, as always, accompanied by his powerful female choir, the Sounds of Joy, comprised of Lizy, Patricia and Florence - all fantastic gospel performers in their own rights.

The A-side, Mam Yinne Wa, is pure future gospel: a swinging rhythm with pumping synth bass and playful horns that weave around the eulogising choir of the group. As a highlight, the chasing flute solo of Free Jazz great Sabir Mateen (Cecile Taylor, Sunny Murray, Hamid Drake) catapults you into another dimension! On the B-side, Yu Ya Yumma, the rhythm section is driven by reggae master Josie Coppola on drums and gives a solid foundation for the brilliant performance of the singers. The title means: let's sing a song. And that is exactly what the group is doing.
