Description

Sohoyini on CD

Sohoyini translates as 'one heart' in the Dagbani language of the Dagombas in Northern Ghana. We created Sohoyini with the hopes of uniting cultures and celebrating our diversity through the beautiful dance and music of West Africa. Our first, self-titled CD was just released in April of 2007. Sohoyini is a blend of traditional and contemporary music recorded in both the US and Ghana. Features two songs recorded on location with Awal's Zosimili group in Tamale, Ghana. Great for dancing to, relaxing to, drumming to, or just listening to! A beautiful and versatile CD with upbeat, danceable rhythms, smooth vocals, and complex rhythmic compositions. About Awal: Awal Alhassan is a traditional Ghanaian performer, born and raised by a drumming and dancing family in Tamale, Ghana. Teaching and performing since the age of 7, he has worked throughout Africa both independently and with groups such as the University of Legon, the National Theatre of Ghana, and the Center for National Culture Dance Troupe, as well as leading the Zosimili after school program for youth. Now in Seattle, he leads and performs high energy dance and drums with Sohoyini Dance and other groups in the Northwest.
