Ghanaian virtuoso SK Kakraba is a master of his craft in every sense; one of the country's foremost gyil players and makers, he literally carves every sound you hear on this unique album. A member of the xylophone family, the gyil's distinctive buzzing sound is created by covering the instrument's holes with spider web silk giving it a captivating sound like no other instrument. The first time Awesome Tapes From Africa has commissioned and released a brand new recording, each of these songs are recorded live, played solo and guaranteed to spirit your attention away from any sense of mundanity or preoccupation. Beautiful.
