Hot Casa presents a tremendous Afro-soul album recorded in Togo in 1977 by Itadi Bonney. This rare album was created by a four-piece band formed and led by Itadi. Recorded live in Ghana at the radio station and remixed in Togo, this album is a really stunning fusion of funky arrangements, jazz inspirations and typical Togolese rhythms, sung in English, Mina, and Akposo. The message was political, calling for African unity against dictatorship, which obliged Itadi to move to Washington DC during the '70s. Itadi Bonney, a native of Togo, West Africa, is an international musician who is a composer, arranger, vocalist, and guitarist. Itadi's music is a blend of Ghana's highlife and soul, creating a sparkling, undulating and eminently danceable wave of melodies and rhythms, punctuated by funky keys and layered with smooth vocals and harmonies. Itadi has toured France, Ghana, Benin, The Ivory Coast, Nigeria, and the U.S. Officially licensed and includes an interview with the artist.
