For today, I wanted to share with you “Mber Papa“, a splendid deep Afrobeat Highlife Soul Jazz track with killer horns & catchy organ parts, recorded in 1979 by the legendary Ghanaian composer & musician Charles Kofi Amankwaa Mann (better known as “C.K. Mann“) and his “Masters” band on the mythical local label “Essiebons” founded by Dick Essilfie-Bondzie.
