RIM KWAKU OBENG / RIM AND BELIEVERS Rim Arrives / International Funk


In stock

Serious afro-disco heat from one & only Samuel K. Mfojo, the man known as Rim Kwaku Obeng.

Ghanaian rhythms tailor-made for the percussive energy that was fuelling the clubs of the seventies. As well as kit drums, conga and an array of percussive instruments, the multi-talented bandleader also played piano and clavinet on the sessions. Throw in some tight horn riffs, Fela-style call and response vocals, and you have an album that fits the current mania for both vintage African music and ever-more obscure disco perfectly. Cuts like Brushing Means Making Love, Gas Line and Believe In Yourself and have been tearing up dancefloors in the hands of specialist DJs for some time: now it’s time for the rest of the world to catch up.

Also included is International Funk, a very in-demand 12” he recorded later as Rim and The Believers, with drum machines and synths in full 1980s effect!
