WOM205 - "Champions of Africa," produced by Paul Borg, just in time for the World Cup
To create the diverse and energising fusion sound of new Africa, West One Music enlisted the talents of producer Paul Borg.
Paul has a global reputation as a World Music composer and producer and has worked with some of the biggest names in the industry. You may recall the number one hit in the World Music charts ‘Yeke Yeke’ with famous artist, Mory Kante. If not, you’ll definitely recognize Paul’s work with well-known artists, such as Naughty by Nature, Shola Ama, MC Solaar, Al Green and Dee Dee Bridgewater.
What makes this production particularly exciting is the incredible wealth of talent brought in by Paul and the team to bring the album to life. Involved in this project are musicians who have worked with the likes of Bob Marley, Patti LaBelle and Michael Jackson to name just a few. We also brought in legendary artists such as Pinise Saul, reviewed by the Guardian in the UK as the ‘Undisputed Queen of Afro-Jazz’, as well as exciting new West African talent Kadialy Kouyate and star of the Lion King musical for 9 years, Luyanda Jezile.
Champions of Africa is available now.
