African Brothers International Band – Me Nnye Osansani

Posted on Updated on

Something lovely just came down the wire! A first appearance for the African Brothers International Band on these pages, which seems a shameful omission. Coalescing in 1963 around Nana Kwame Ampadu, in all its incarnations the African Brothers Band was known for its politically instructive lyrics, catchy guitar rhythms and performing only original music.

The rhythm track is deft –built on native percussion and intertwining guitars– and will summon a shake to all but the most moribund of hips.

Me Nnye Osansani translates as ‘I’m not a drifter/bum.”
