From the Upper East Region of Ghana, comes the rebel sound of a man ruling the roost with song, dance and regal Kologo power. The King is all out to get you. The way his raw and uplifting vocals gives real power to the songs, the way he delves deep into local traditions and pulls out new African flavours. Ricocheting between smooth and suave turns, then riffing off urbane Hip Life or rocking to tribal workouts, the King’s sonic voice and two string guitar with a calabash gourd resonator are the central centrifugic epicentre for the band who always deliver a floor filling show.
“Ayisoba blends elements of the urban and the rural into a music that is singularly his own…both alive and modern, old and deep.” THE WIRE
