ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
After the release of the first single Von Na Agbeto a song based on the Simpa  rhythm,
this new release by DOGO Made Eviwo talks about parents who insist their kids marry only wealthy people.
This acoustic song is based on Akpesse-Bobobo of Region des Plateau in Togo. Ewe people of West Africa (Ivory to Nigeria) use this rhythm, but it is mostly used in Togo and Ghana.
The Bobobo is developed by Francis Kojo Nuatro. He is thought to have been an ex-police officer who organized a dance group in the middle to late 1940s. The dance has its roots from Wusuta and in the 'Highlife' popular music across West African countries. Bobobo gained national recognition in the 1950s and 1960s because of its use at political rallies and the novelty of its dance formations and movements. It is generally performed at funerals and other social occasions. This is a social dance with a great deal of room for free expression. In general, the men sing and dance in the center while the women dance in a ring around them. There are 'slow' and 'fast' versions of Bobobo. The slow one is called Akpese and the fast one is termed to be Bobobo.
