Bola
“Tigantabame”

Awesome Tapes From Africa, the hit blog-turned-label, is preparing its second release, a double LP/CD reissue of an album called Volume 7, originally released on cassette in 2008, by Ghana artist and kologo virtuoso Bola. This bewildering mini-dv short film transforms into a music video (with some ace dancing) four minutes in. Let’s all agree to spread this around as much as possible, and hopefully this will become a new dance craze. Pre-orders are up now, discs drop April 3.
