Ghanaian Afro funk and Boogie from Sidiku Buari is the focus of the next Soundway 12”. On the A side a classic Ghana style afro funk cut recorded at Ghana Film Studios has a characteristic Lo-Fi sound led by George Amissah’s (Ebo Taylor, K. Frimpong, Uhuru Dance Band) trademark sax over a squelchy synth and drum groove. This is backed on the flip by a boogie funk cut (Music) recoded in NYC in the early 80s with Fanti chants and soulful vocals from the big man himself. ‘Alhaji’ Sidiku Buari gained fame in the 70s in Ghana and the USA after moving to New York and recording an album (which featured the soul-jazz legend Bernard Purdie) for RCA that was one of the first mainstream afro-funk LPs ever to hit the market in the USA. After two subsequent albums that produced some afro disco classics including the seminal “I’m Ready” he eventually returned to Ghana where he became the chairman of the Ghanaian Copyright Society (COSGA). The two tracks are taken from an obscure 12” release from 1983 that unfortunately had a pressing defect on “Anokwar”, so with some twiddling and editing Hide & Smile have restored it ready for some overdue dance-floor use once again.
