Akwaaba Means Welcome
Vacation. I love it. Even being a tourist, when I hate it. I just got back from Hawaii.
After participating in a great discussion I went to the beach, and didn't touch a computer for 10 days. No, it wasn't the discussion that drove me to that.
A friend and partner of mine is releasing an album soon and starting a label for African music, specializing in contemporary youth and urban scenes like Coupe Decale, Hiplife, Reggae, Hip Hop, and also more traditional griot musics.
The money goes half direct to the artists in Africa, so folks... put your money where your mouth is, cause that's the universal language for appreciation! :) Right now first release date is looking more like early October, but there are sound examples at the myspace, and artist info, and I'll put some tracks up soon!
