OY: West African Storytelling Through a Luminous Electronic Kaleidoscope

Hear this show now: | Add or read comments



OY. Photo by Zoe Noble. Photo below of Joy by Thomas Leblanc and Puppet Jimmy by Joy.


Splendidly imaginative & creative Swiss-Ghanaian vocalist & musician Joy Frempong and drummer & producer Lleluja-Ha combine their talents as OY. For OY's recent Crammed Discs debut No Problem Saloon, Joy traveled around Ghana, writing song lyrics based on the personal stories, poems and folk tales she heard there. The duo then added layers of percussion, keyboards and electronics to create truly distinctive, colorful - and danceable - songs. Experience OY's luminous electro-African soundscapes live tonight on WFMU!
