Album Notes
Atamina, or we should say Dr Professor Atamina, is one of the protagonists of the new wave of Kologo Power, a music scene that hails from Ghana's North East Region, that spread all over Ghana after King Ayisoba's number one kologo hit song "I want to see you my father", and is now conquering the whole world. Atamina is the smart guy, with tongue-in-cheeck social-critical lyrics, pulling away the carpet under the feet of West-Africa's new developing bourgeoisies. There is a strong link to the Delta blues with it's story-telling but Atamina might as well be called the Sleaford Mods of West Africa with his stripped beats and rants.
Listen to the song "When two elephants fight"; Atamina is moving from one leg to the other, playing circles around us, listeners, and the djembe drum is following in perfect tred. It makes Atamina sound like he is dancing with an elephant that took his lessons from Mohammed Ali. Then listen to "No one wants to die", a song that pulls you inside with it's hypnotic rhythm and riff and then boxes you on the ears with it's message. This is Atamina at whole-length; the doctor is coming to treat you, but he sure isn't a gentle healer.
