City Boys

The City Boys International Band of Ghana is one of those bands that must be popular in Ghana (and Nigeria) itself but who are allmost unknown over here. Probably because of their vocals: this typical sharp Ghanaian sound, not very comfortable in Western ears. The music reminds me of the African Brothers: perhaps no coincidense since the leader of the City boys, Obooba J.A. Adofo 'Black Chinese' is Nana Ampadu's nephew.













City Boys - Me yaree fi mefie

ps: got it in the wrong sleeve, anyone knows the title of the album? (Scodisc Sound SDX9, first track 'Gyae Su')

hey this album is awesome, i got it about a year ago but have never transferred it to digital. I like your blog, keep it up. And as a request, I'm a huge fan of Alhaji K Frimpong and his various bands. I once saw a vis-a-vis album go for over $500 on ebay which is way out of my price range. Do you have any full albums from this great artist?

Hi,

Yes,these prices are unbelievable sometimes..
I have a cd: http://www.ghana.co.uk/shop/productdetails.asp?PDCTCODE=274
and 1 lp, don't know the title. Also some Vis-a-vis tracks.
I'll see if i can post them sometime.
If you have something to trade,that's another matter...

yes, I have that CD and I made another comp for myself of other tracks I've found on African comps and such. In the Ghana Soundz vol. 1 liner notes there's a picture of Vis-a-Vis and Alhaji (i think) is holding a korg synth. When I saw that picture I couldn't believe it because I too own the same keyboard. It sounds nice. As for trade, do you mean vinyl or digital?
