Editorial Reviews

2012 release. "I wanted to go back to a highlife feeling with this album," explains Ebo Taylor. "The songs are very personal and it is an important part of my music to keep alive many traditional Fante songs, war chants and children's rhymes." 'Appia Kwa Bridge', released this April, is a strident return from the Ghanaian highlife guitar legend. Featuring six new compositions, his sound is more dense and tightly locked than ever with Berlin-based musicians Afrobeat Academy, a rock solid unit since regular touring worldwide following his 'Love And Death' album in 2010.

Format: Audio CD
Ebo Taylor is a Ghanaian Highlife musician and guitarist, and his latest effort "Appia Kwa Bridge" comprising 8 tracks, will appeal to those that love free-form live sounding music with impeccable instrumentation.

Filled with darting horns, melodic keys, great guitar work, and African polyrhythms (legendary drummer Tony Allen appears on the album), songs like "Ayesama", "Abonsam" (with a Jazzy guitar solo), and the absolutely gorgeous horn-filled "Assom Dwee" (my favourite) infuse a bit of Afrobeat in the mix. "Yaa Amponsah" is more stripped back, pushing his fine guitar work and vocals to the fore.
"Nau Na Kwan" is a nice shuffling piece. The Funky "Kruman Day" is triumphant sounding with a few verses sung in English. The title track is more laid back, while closing is the acoustic "Barrima" with finely plucked guitar and Taylor's gentle vocals on showcase, a lament for his late wife.

Beautiful music which transcends language barriers.
