Mike DeRoitr This thing is underrated... listening to the complex & rewarding tracks is kind of like solving a math equation in yr head w/o having to think hard. I guess that's a pretty American way to perceive this music according to the insert... either way, it's my pleasure to add this to my record collection.

about

YONYE is a collection of solo recordings made shortly after SK Kakraba's relocation to America.

In his words:
"The songs on this album are Lobi traditional music from Ghana, but they are recorded here in California. The album is called 'YONYE' because I have traveled and seen different life, different things. The music is traditional songs, reacting to what I have seen here."
