Come the 1st of July, Kumasi will host the most consuming music revolution at the Golden Tulip – Kumasi City.
The event will be the official launch party for Shatta Rako’s most anticipated work till date, the Classic Remixes Album. Shatta will also launch another album, The Redefined Album, on that same day to give patrons a double deal.
The classic remixes features remixed songs from the finest highlife artistes of all time. It features Shatta Rako’s versions of songs from Kojo Aquai, Jewel Ackah, Charles Amoah, Abrekyireba Kofi Sammy, Felix Owusu, Lee Doodu, Ofori Amponsah, Onipa Nua, and others.
The album features all new vocal appearances from the like of Kojo Aquai and some other surprise highlife legend.
Most of the artistes whose songs have been remixed will be at the launch and will perform live with Shatta Rako.
According to Shatta Rako, his motivation for the Classic Remixes Album is to ensure authentic Ghanaian highlife pieces are preserved.
“I’ve gone the extra mile to give the original songs different rhythms to sustain continued interest in the music that really makes us Ghanaian. I made a conscious effort to keep the lyrical content intact but I have also added my own lines to give all the songs a fresh feel. To give the songs a global appeal, I tried re-oriented the songs by using different rhythms. So you’ll hear a typical Jewel Ackah song set in a reggae rhythm. It’s just amazing,” he said.
Shatta Rako (also known as Kojo Legend) is therefore calling for the support of the media, fans and all stakeholders in Ghanaian heritage to support this project.
