ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
BIOGRAPHY

Godonu Kofi Srigboh grew up in a family of mostly boys. They all played a variety of instruments. Under the guidance of his musically talented father, Godonu took
"Blekete" drums, made for the family by the father.

Godonu was born at Aflao in the Volta Region of Ghana, West Africa. He spent part of his childhood in Lome, Togo, where he was educated in the French system. He later returned to Ghana, where he continued his education in English at the Accra Polytechnic majoring in Refrigeration and Air Conditioning. During this time he played an active role as a lead drummer in the cultural activities of the Ewe Association of Lagos Town, a suburb of Accra.

Godonu spent some time in Europe, where he understudied some of the up and coming young African musicians in France and Spain. He immigrated to Toronto, Canada in the latter part of 1986. In 1988, he joined the Ewe Multicultural Association of Ontario (E.M.A.O.) and became a member of the Association's culture group. The cultural group performed at many social functions, thereby providing Godonu with the opportunity to hone his drumming skills. In 1995 he was elected the Entertainment Co-coordinator of the Association. This position gave him the opportunity to teach others Ewe traditional drumming and dancing.

Godonu is also a composer and singer. He writes lyrics in his mother tongue Ewe, a language spoken in the Volta Region of Ghana, the southern part of Togo and the Republic of Benin. Godonu translates some of his lyrics into English, French, Spanish, Ga and Twi. He had his debut CD "EMEFA" ---- ALL IS CALM and currently working hard on his second CD,"CAN WE ALL JUST GET ALONG!" Godonu's music is a blend of the varied rhythms of Ewe traditional drumming such as Akpalu, Akpese, Agbadza, Borborbor, Gahu, Kantata, Kinka to name a few. All these varied rhythms put together makes the "SOOGOO MUSIC". The group is called "EGBEVIWO" ----THE NEW GENERATION.

DENYIGBA : voyage en images et musique avec l’artiste Godonu Kofi Srigboh.
Une petite réalisation de Togocity pour faire revivre en quelques images les rues de Lomé et les paysages de notre Denyigba. Egalement faire découvrir aux amateurs de la musique togolaise, l’artiste Godonu Kofi Srigboh avec son morceau "Denyigba" dont nous avons trouvé les paroles assez évocatrices du sentiment auquel on convie toutes les bonnes volontés ; ainsi que d’autres non moins expressifs.

Bonne dégustation et n’oublions pas notre Denyigba, elle a plus que jamais besoin de nous.

J'ai acheté 2. Un pour moi l' autre pour un ami qui l'a aussi apprécié. Que Dieu te bénisse afin que tu sortes encore d'autres albums. Moi je vis en Martinique, bien loin du Togo. Tes chanssons me consolent des fois, et me donnent la joie et me font réfléchir. Cher ami, courage et bonne continuation. Eme ne fa miam miam tègbè. Akpé et à bientôt
