4.70 32

A contemporary treasure from the region and time spanning diggers at Dust To Digital – glorious church recordings captured in the Christian congregations of Ghana's capital city of Accra in 2008! We've loved each of Dust To Digital's projects to date – always shining a bright light on sounds and cultures from around the world – and there's something especially wonderful about getting to experience fairly recent material such as this – a reminder of how rare opportunities to experience far away cultures' music can be even with modern technologies. Recorded and edited by Calpin Hoffman-Williamson, it features sparely soaring solo and chorus vocal numbers and feverish backing instrumentation, from electric guitar, woozy organ and tambourines to heavy drums and percussion. 25 tracks in all: "Adoration Prayer" by the Christ Believer's Ministry and more, "Good Things For Ghana" by the Family Worship Centre, "Yewo Fawohodi" and more by Divine Healer's Church: Ashaiman Assembly, "No Politics In Heaven" by Great Grace Church, "Claps From Power Miracle" by the Power Miracle Chapel Int and many more.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
