Lee Dodou & The Polyversal Souls – Basa Basa

As the lead singer of George Darko’s legendary Burger-Highlife hit-band, Lee Dodou became the number one voice of 80’s Highlife. Born in Kumasi, the epicenter of Ghanaian Highlife, he came to Berlin in the late 70’s – by then the uprising epicenter of Burger-Highlife – to work as a back-up-singer for Pat Thomas. After joining and leaving Georg Darko and running his own band “Kantata”, he stopped releasing music in the early 90’s. Now, Philophon is proud to present new recordings of his soulful genius to the world of 2018.

Basa Basa is a song in the classic “concert party” style, as it was played in the glorious 60’s. After a firey horn introduction Lee takes over in that funny and entertaining manner typical for “concert party” music. Buzz Duncker joins Lee’s phrases with some gentle clarinet. Highlife at its best!

Sahara Akwantuo is anything but a classic: it’s the start of a kind of philophonic Highlife, labeled as Kraut-Life. Ghanaian love of life meets German romantic melancholy. Happy rhythms meet mysterious synth landscapes. Eternal summertime and mangos are meeting a wet winter world and roast apples. Kraut-Life at its best!
