ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A benefit compilation recorded and assembled by former Peace Corps volunteer, Luke Bassuener (from the Madison WI indie band, THIS BRIGHT APOCALYPSE). Bawku West Collective Vol. 1 features musicians recorded live to tape in various locations around Zebilla, Ghana. The tapes were brought back, given a dubb-y sort of makeover, complete with deep bass lines, additional percussion and distorted kalimbas. This album is the result. All the proceeds go back to the musicians of the collective, managed by Luke's former student, Charles Braimah, who also provided translation assistance and appeared on the album as "DJ Bones," introducing the various artists.
