Product Description

I Have My Liberty! Gospel Sounds from Accra, Ghana is an album of sounds and performances recorded live in 2008 from the churches of Ghana's capital city. This album is the missing link between American gospel records by artists like Rev. Johnny L. Jones and traditional African artists like those featured on Opika Pende: Africa at 78 RPM. I Have My Liberty! Gospel Sounds from Accra, Ghana is an album of sounds and performances recorded live in 2008 from the churches of Ghana's capital city. Amid Accra s bustling sprawl of swirling dust and exhaust, are countless havens for homegrown musical expression: charismatic and spiritual Christian churches. There, distorted PA systems, anchored by female singers, and ramshackle guitars played by a rotating cast of local men weave in and out of popular melodies bringing congregations to their feet. Singers emote in repeated phrases, lifted by tambourines, claps, and percussion, to unite their voices in praise and worship. I Have My Liberty! Gospel Sounds from Accra, Ghana takes listeners into these churches, where congregations join together to process the anxieties of their West African metropolis.

It Seems Jesus DID Cross the Atlas Mountains 15 Oct 2012
By Arthur Shuey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I Have My Liberty
Gospel Sounds From Accra, Ghana
Various Artists
Dust to Digital Records DTD-23

Missionaries attempting to convert newly enslaved West Africans to their new masters' religion in the colonial period were often told by slavers, "Jesus never crossed the Atlas Mountains." The cynical idea that people of the region are not suited for anything as gentle and civilized as Christianity remains an undercurrent idea throughout the Western World even today, with self-proclaimed Christian clergy and congregations in Ghana frequently appearing in headlines for mixing their faith with pagan beliefs and for crimes ranging from fraud to rape, as if any denomination anywhere has ever been proof against the darker spiritualisms and predilections of our species.

"I Have My Liberty" is a release so unashamedly passionate as to prove itself at first listen to be 100% pure church music, though perhaps not straight out of the hymnals closest to the hands of readers of this review. It is shared praise, prayer and faith, and not altogether unfamiliar to non-West African ears. One hears "missing link" melodies connecting, for example, chants from the original, Old World "Ashanti towns" and "Goodnight, Irene." Some of the recordings, too, interestingly seem to go back toward African forms from traditional Protestant hymns like "Go Tell It On the Mountain."

World music fans browsing CD bins might briefly contemplate this release and go on to another, presuming that an anthology of recordings from Christian congregations in Accra such as "I Have My Liberty" would lack the listening pleasure of variety. Such is not the case at all. From prayers to acapella choir to drum backing to more complex instrumentation, this collection has as much variety as the space on a CD permits.
