Now 74 years-old, Ebo Taylor's music has become increasingly in-demand in recent years with a series of Ghanaian compilations on Soundway Records and Analog Africa and an unexpected sample as Usher lifted a riff from 'Heaven' for his hit with Ludacris, 'She Don't Know'. A new Ebo Taylor album was a natural progression. "For the new album, I wanted to advance the cause of Afrobeat music. Fela started it and we shouldn't just abandon it. We should push it so it is a standard form of music." The result is a firing new set backed by Afrobeat Academy, a Berlin-based collective featuring members of Poets Of Rhythm, Kabu Kabu (Jimi Tenor collaborators) and Ghanaian legends Marijata. Tracks include new versions of Taylor classics 'Victory' and 'Love And Death' and a selection of new compositions including 'Kwame', celebrating Ghana's late, lamented leader Kwame Nkrumah.
