Volume two continues the Soundway journey into the underground sounds of 1970s Ghana where highlife, rock, and soul collided and merged with tradition and culture.

Much of the material featured had previously never been released outside of Africa thus the album offers a window on a scene previously unknown outside of Ghana.

This period is particularly pertinent to Ghana’s history as it heralded the the last major wave of music productions before financial crisis and revolution hit Ghana hard in the 1980s reducing the recording industry to a shadow of it’s former self.

Reviews

“After the recent deluge of second rate afrobeat compilations, Ghana Soundz volume 2 comes up as fresh as an African daisy.” SONGLINES (UK)
