Dondo under his armpit, kente wrappped around his waste, bare chested with beads around his neck and the Senku band ready to fire away! — Worlasi’s album Listening is exactly how the album should be soaked in — LIVE.
Worlasi’s 3rd studio album; WORLA – THE MAN & THE GOD, is a collaborative album with his day one band – SENKU; who WORLASI gives production & composition credits to. The 10 track album was recorded live. An album inspired by the great Ghanaian band OSIBISA — a vibe of native elements, comedic compositions & great musicianship through and through.
The listening session saw him perform 5 of the songs off the upcoming 10-track album scheduled for release on the 1st of December.
Worla’s sound continues to growth in depth. From the traditional elements, distinct lyrics, unique style of tap & song that keeps his verses sought after by many of his fellow artists. His native tongue; Ewe is still very dominant in the songs we heard with a few verses of pidgin laced in.
If this Listening is anything to go by, we’re all in for an incredible experience at his upcoming FESTIVAL scheduled for the 7th of December also at Alliance Francaise.
The album is Available for pre-order on aftown.com
