Sunny Afrika - The Music of Herman Asafo-Agyei

Sunny Afrika - The Music of Herman Asafo-Agyei
CD / Product Number: URCD287

Herman Asafo-Agyei is without doubt one of Africa’s most celebrated bass players with an active career spanning some 40 years. Herman’s music reflects the gamut of influence from Osibisa-style horns, to flirtations with guitarand-dance-band highlife, to highly percussive passages reminiscent of Hedzoleh Soundz – bass, rhythm and percussion are characteristic.
The lyrics of his theme song – Sunny Afrika - reflects the relaxed social environment and jubilant atmosphere in which Herman grew up – GHANA. Whilst Herman was bassist for Osibisa, he also formed his own group Native Spirit which made a significant impact on the development of African music in Canada in 1987. Glorious Afro-funk-Fusion.
