  1. This Is Bolga! (part 1) (3:35)
  2. This Is Bolga! (part 2) (3:53)
Review: German-Ghanaian group the Polyversal Souls have previously collaborated with a number of bands and solo artists from West Africa, so this hook-up with Northern Ghanaian outfit the Bolga All Stars - a collective made up of leading local kologo and frafra-gospel singers and musicians - should not come as much of a surprise. Separated into two parts for the seven-inch release, the track blends the Polyversal Souls' lolloping, late '60s style Afro-funk grooves - complete with fuzzy, period style production - and sharp horn section with glistening guitars, snaking solos and fine vocals from the Bolga All Stars. It's one of the Polyversal Souls' finest releases yet, and that's saying something.

  1. Basa Basa (4:08)
  2. Sahara Akwantuo (3:46)
Review: Those with a deep knowledge of Berlin's Ghanaian ex-pat "burger-highlife" scene may already be familiar with Lee Dodou, a singer who recorded a number of classic singles and albums during the 1980s as part of bands Georg Darko and Kantata. He retired from music in 1991, but has been persuaded to return to action by the Philophon team. This comeback single is pretty impressive all told, with A-side "Basa Basa" - a triumphantly celebratory chunk of 1960s "concert party" highlife rich in punchy horn lines and Dodou's full-throated vocals - being joined on the flipside by the slower, synth-laden "Sahara Akwantou". Brilliantly, the label describes this as "kraut-life" due to its unique (and rather good) fusion of highlife and German kosmiche.

  1. Feqer Feqer New (feat Alemayehu Eshete) (3:45)
  2. Portrait Of Alemayehu (Daytime) (4:05)
Review: Last year, heavyweight Ghanaian-German band the Polyversal Souls returned to action with their first new material in three years - a killer Highlife single called "Basa Basa" featuring guest vocalist Lee Dodou. This speedy follow-up boasts a guest vocalist, too: near legendary Ethiopian soul and jazz singer Alemayehu Eshete. He makes his presence felt on "Feqer Feqer New", delivering a hazy and exotic vocal over the band's cheery, '60s style Gamelan backing track. The resultant cut is nothing less than spectacular. Over on side B, the band goes solo on the laidback and breezy "Portrait of Alemayehu (Daytime)", where chiming melodies and punchy horns rise above glistening guitars, rich bass and shuffling drums.
