Ata Kak at Band On The Wall, Manchester

Ata Kak is the mysterious Ghanaian electronic/rap/highlife icon who kick-started the whole
Awesome Tapes From Africa phenomenon. After a long wait he has now started to play
his first ever live performances in Europe.

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.'
