Kelenkye Band "Moving World" 1974

Kelenkye Band was at the time Ghana's own supergroup. They released this only LP in 1974 called Moving World. All members has worked with the countries elite musicians before this recording session (like Oko Ringo, Officer Toro and Leslie Addy), but they have never played together earlier. The music on the album has a wide range (for Ghana bands) - afrobeat, highlife, funk, reggae and rock - but everything is played in a very distinctive Kelenkey way and sounds marvelous. This is a damned great and groovy pearl!
