My first thoughts while I was listening to this amazing album: my soul travels far away.
The album “Dzen” demonstrates that the Ghanaian musician Adjiri Odametey has absulutely reached the top of African World Music. With his warm voice and heartful ryhthms he lets your soul travel through the different sounds of Ghana. Absolutely outstanding!
