Guy One – Suro Yuama

A: “Suro Yuama”
B: “A Me Bayela Do Me”

Guy One, the most famous voice of the Frafra people in northern Ghana, is a super star among his people. He sings while playing the Kologo, an ancient two stringed banjo, mostly for traditional occasions. His words always have a strong meaning which gives him the attribute of a singing philosopher. For his Philophon debut, he teamed up with drummer/producer Max Weissenfeldt, to meld Max’s deep grooves with a haunting choir of Frafra soul.
