Description
The residents of the dry savannah next to the Brong Ahafo region of Ghana have developed some of Africa's most unique vocal techniques and instrumental forms. This is music of the people, encompassing everything from personal and religious themes and to social and political commentary. Instruments include drums, percussion, flutes, and lutes.

"One of many field recordings capturing the wealth of Africa's roots music, this Lyrichord compilation focuses on the tribes of northern Ghana, a region whose arid landscape contrasts sharply with the country's more fertile coastal regions. Like high-profile releases on the Nonesuch label, this impressive collection benefits from clean sound and a varied program."—All Music Guide
