Barcode: 0751937435716

Catalog no.: ATFA0000019

Item ID: 427498

DJ Katapila creates traditional Ga music using electronic sounds instead of live percussion, resulting in his own kind of house music. In the context of Ghana's pop music landscape, Katapila's music is singular. The uptempo, bass-heavy, Roland 808-rooted sounds echo early 1990's Detroit techno and Chicago acid house more than the contemporary hiplife productions which currently blast across Ghanaian airwaves.

Also available: TROTRO (CD), TROTRO (+ BONUS TRACKS) (12").
