10/10/2020: “Atwer Abroba” by Ebo Taylor

Ebo Taylor has had a long and fruitful career in highlife and afrobeat. This groove filled jam exemplifies the musicianship which seems to flow like honey in Ghana…

A catchy and colourful horns riff provides a lot of the melodic interest, with a rumbling bassline and solid guitar lick acting as a framework.

Throughout the song’s 8 minute run time, the different elements dance and weave, each with its time in the spotlight. Even the keyboard/organ gets a go!

“Atwer Abroba” was released in 1978 on Twer¬†Nyame, and again in 2011 on Life¬†Stories.
