Do It Now!

Ekow Howard

About the album

Ekow Howard was the house musician and performer at Hans Botel, a nice lodging facility if you visit the city of Cape Coast in Ghana. When my good friend Frank Agyekum told him to come to Hanna's Homestyle Paradise bar and lodge, we knew that Ekow's music and my recording equipment were made for one another.  We set up studio at my simple room at Hanna's lodge, Ekow brought his compositions, we looked for the right rhythms and started recording. All the songs are Ekow's compositions, except Something is Happening which I wrote as a Hebrew song in the eve of my last trip to Cape Coast. I played Ekow the playback and he closed his eyes to concentrate, then awoke and started to improvise his version in Twi, with the help of Nannama who gives him background and duet singing. Back in Israel, Ben Antwi arranged all the tracks, added bass lines, guitars and backup voices, did the mixing to get the results you hear on Do it Now.

African music.
