Previously unreleased '80s Afro-rock by the founder of Ghana's legendary Hedzoleh Soundz. Amartey Hedzoleh is a veteran of Ghana's Afro-rock scene. Drawing from various musical traditions in Ghana and from his partly Indian roots, he has created his own distinctive style. He started in the '60s as bass player and singer of the Psychedelic Aliens, and performed with them at the legendary Soul to Soul concert in Accra. In 1972 he founded Hedzoleh Soundz, which earned him the name Hedzoleh (a word for peace and freedom). He left the group before they hit the studio, but his songs ended up being recorded on their debut album and on Hugh Masekela's 'Introducing Hedzoleh Soundz'. Soon after that, he embarked on a solo career. Among other projects, Amartey Hedzoleh wrote and performed the soundtrack of King Ampaw's 1983 movie 'Kukurantumi - Road to Accra'. After he handed over his tape to the film crew, he recorded a new and expanded version of the soundtrack with many extra songs. It was never released, and the tapes were left on the shelf for decades. A selection of these recordings is presented here for the first time ever.
