The legendary Ebo Taylor, globally significant guitar virtuoso and highlife originator, is gathering his musical friends and disciples to compose a world class song in memory of President Atta Mills of Ghana within the next week.
He hopes that this would match his Highlife Classic Samanfo ngye nsa nom. Ebo Taylor's root composition and arrangement is at http://soundcloud.com/africatalks/ebo-taylor-for-his-excellency.
Confirmed musicians who would join Ebo Taylor through various technologies including virtual internet technologies are Alfred Kari Bannerman of Osibisa and Konkoma, Gregg Kofi Brown of Osibisa and super drummer Ekow Alabi Savage of Ekowmania and Afrobeat Academy in Berlin.
Ebo Taylor is considering other musicians and invites offers of participation. This effort is powered by Africa Next Knowledge Brokerage.
