10 new songs for children: fables and tales from griots in Ghana played by the band Adesa on water calabashes, korlegonor lute, balafon, violin gonje, guitar, bass, african drums and percussion.
The children discover in all songs the mystical, exciting world of West African griots and the African joy of life.
Why are spiders like to hide in corners always? Why do crocodiles eat chicken and why are not crocodile tears, no real tears? Why are fire and wind no friends? And why the bird Jabahee flies in winter to Africa? Why does the vulture has no feathers on the head and neck? And, and, and has ....?
Adesa means humanity and expresses the cosmopolitan attitude of the ghanan band, working since 20 years on music for children. The musicians had been awarded with the Africa Festival Award 2010 of the Africa Festival Würzburg.
