ATA KAK

----------

ATA KAK's music has been a legend on the internet since Awesome Tapes From Africa made the mysterious Ghanaian singer/rapper's tape its very first blog post. ATA KAK’s 'Obaa Sima' cassette fell on deaf ears when it was first self-released in Ghana in 1994 but when American musicologist Brian Shimkovitz stumbled upon the tape at a street stall in Cape Coast, Ghana eight years later it became the stimulus for him to launch his Awesome Tapes from Africa blog, writing in his inaugural post: "This is it. The song is called 'Moma Yendodo.' You may never hear anything like this elsewhere. No one I know in Ghana listens to this frenetic leftfield rap madness." The auteur's left-field highlife-hip-house creation is one of the more joyous sounds out there.
