Pat Thomas & Kwashibu Area Band - Obiaa! (2LP)



Strut is proud to announce Pat Thomas & Kwashibu Area Band's sophomore release 'Obiaa!', released on 4th October 2019. The album, produced again by Kwame Yeboah and Ben Abarbanel-Wolff at Lovelite Studio's analogue HQ in Berlin, is a deep and soulful journey into the heart of Ghana's indigíenous highlife music celebrating the timeless and iconic voice of Pat Thomas, the 72 year-old "Golden Voice of Africa".
After producing Ebo Taylor's seminal albums 'Love and Death' and 'Appia Kwa Bridge' for Strut Reícords, in 2014 Ben Abarbanel-Wolff approached Kwame Yeboah, Ghana's top contemporary instrumenítalist and bandleader, to work on a new project: "We initially wanted to invite Pat back into the studio with Ebo Taylor and Tony Allen to recreate and expand on some of the vibes they had recorded together during a lost session in 1977," Ben explains. Recorded in Accra, the result was the critically acclaimed self-titled debut album 'Pat Thomas & Kwashibu Area Band' in 2015.
