Akwaaba – A Fair Trade Record Label

Aug 28 2009

Akwaaba is a record label trying to spread music from Africa that has a hard time to reach a global market. The music spans from traditional folk, soul and reagge to more electronic club music like kuduro. Here is two tracks from their catalouge. First the track “Bobaraba” from the compilation Move It Chaleh!. Move It Chaleh focuses on “Coupé décalé” that is uptempo dance music from the Ivory coast and “Hiplife” from Ghana that mixes calypso, hiphop and dancehall.
The second track is Tiramikossa performed by Noite e Dia from the Kuduro comipilation Akwaaba Sem Transporte.

Akwaaba together with Mad Decent and Fairtilizer is hosting a fun remix competiton check it out here!
