about

Afro-music continues to inspire a whole host of musicians, producers and DJs but even now the full picture of Afro-music in the 1960s and 70s is still far from being properly represented. Ghana Soundz Volume 2 goes some way to readdressing the balance.

Following the success of Ghana Soundz Volume One, the second volume involved another a long journey to Ghana by music ethnologist and label owner Miles Cleret. This collection of unheard of and priceless gems visits the harder ground of Ghana, the pulsating centre that is afro-beat and afro-funk.

“After the recent deluge of second-rate Afro-beat compilations full of Western dance types ripping off serious musicians, Ghana Soundz Volume 2 comes up as fresh as an African daisy.”
- Songlines, December 2004

“Yet another crucial comp from Soundway. [...] Soundway has risen to the status of a label whose releases one can buy on faith alone.”
- Exclaim magazine, Canada
