Following a successful EP in 2019, featuring remixes from Osunlade & Pocz, Olindo Records are proud to present “Wono”, the debut collaborative album from Koichi Sakai & Afla Sackey. The album is a deep exploration of Koichi’s love of both electronic and West African music, in close collaboration with Ghana-born master percussionist, singer, band leader, teacher and songwriter, Afla Sackey.
The album features 7 tracks ranging from the meditative “Yamb”, which features master kora player Kadialy Kouyate, to the acid infused, slow house workout of “Niege”. Passing through a contemporary highlife take on advance single “Suolo” and a shorter version of the previously released “Jingo”.
“Wono” means “It’s Ours” in Ga. As in that which you desire, will be yours in time, even if you do not possess it now. So don’t rush brother, patience is a virtue.
