Y-Bayani new single out Jan 11

From Philophon: "With his third single release, Y-Bayani (pronounced like Why-Bayani) shows clearly that he is the most intriguing roots-reggae sensation coming out of Ghana.

Here, he’s backed again by the lushly grooving Band of Enlightenment, Reason and Love.

‘Asembi Ara Amba’, sung in Fanti language, is an old Fanti story about having bad luck if you see a vulture up in the sky.

As Y-Bayani sees one suddenly and for no reason he gets in trouble with the police. Being held back in the police station he finally takes his chance to escape into freedom while the police men taking a nap.

On ‘We Are The Band of Enlightenment, Reason And Love’ the group presents their personal anthem. The song is a cinematic journey, taking off with a mighty horn theme, followed by a mantric chant. A bijou symphony for sure."

Out January 11th on 7" vinyl/digital.
