Doose Mam / Gure Yose Me
Alogte Oho & His Sounds of Joy are back with a new single release after their album debut “Mam Yinne Wa”, which can be seen as a harbinger of the second album. You can hear another Frafra Gospel masterpiece by the king of this genre.
“Doose Mam” is a soulful piece that goes straight to the limbs with its repetitive rhythm. The jubilant middle section, in which the wind instruments and the choir pass the balls to each other, is to be emphasized. “Gure Yose Me” ties in with the Frafra Gospel tradition of making use of reggae rhythms. Here we hear a stepper played by Josie Coppola, Europe’s No.1 reaggae drummer. Both pieces were produced both in Berlin and in Kumasi by Max Weissenfeldt in Philophon’s in-house Joy Sound Studios.
