ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
King Chameleon and more West African Folktales is a selection of folklore believed to have originated from West Africa and the people who live in the region. West Africa is home to many tribes and languages but it is usual to find similarities between the local folktales , and in some cases one version of a tale is different from another only because of the names of the main characters . Most of the stories in this volume were from Ghana and Togo but are commonly retold in several forms all over the West Africa region.
