1. Way Out Of Sadness
Hailing from the capital city, the Togo All Stars display a vigorous rhythm section and three sturdy voices deeply rooted within the afropop traditions stemming from the independence era, be it high-life, afro beat, funk, reggae or even gospel music. A passionate man with a cause, Serge Amiano has been living in LomT for a few years now. Thanks to his musical vision, he's the mastermind behind Togo All Stars' meeting of two generations. He confronts younger musicians playing in the shadows with older voices long thought to be tarnished under elusive limelight. Tireless talent scout and energy catalyst, Amiano paved the way for the Togo All Stars to happen; in the same manner he did it for Fanga, a celebrated French afro beat collective in the last decade. Korbo, Fanga's singer is featured on the Togo All Stars' first album to be released this spring, under Kindred spirits record label. Nested behind it's sea front lined with tentative palm trees, LomT is an unsung Atlantic Africa city. The city mixes the energy of a restless youth with displays of genuine emotions that were once the soundtrack of the country's independence, from April 27th 1960 to this day. Set in a country where cultural preservation is almost pointless, Serge Amiano had the idea to bring together rough voices from the past with the supreme rhythms of young lions dedicated to any kind of repertoire they lay their hands on. A true electric shock between generations, the Togo All Stars combine dignified and vintage singers with youthful musicians, exuberant rhythm section, liquid guitars and devastating horns. Genuine Togolese afro funk pioneer, charming Napo de mi Amor brings his solid vocal experience to the front of the orchestra. Aguey Cudjoe is Amiano's true discovery. He stumbled upon this veteran singer doing high-life numbers in one of LomT's rare clubs. He became effortlessly one of the All Stars main voices, also adding sweet percussive touches in the distance. Experienced and mature, Dama Damawuzan learnt his trade within As du BTnin, the great and main Togolese orchestra from the 1970's. He confronts his vocal prowess's to his own percussions but also to young drummer Gbetoglo Efoevi's fierce groove. On this album, each of the All Stars' eight musicians joins in for vocal harmonies. Legendary Otodi Studio was reopened for the sole recording of this first Togo All Stars album, giving exquisite analog warmth to the songs. Unappreciated for the time being, these gathered stars from Togo set bridges between the past, the present and the future of an always moving afro music. Fresh and raw energy combined with vintage singers, the Togo All Stars's music embodies a true international musical elegance, looming large over the Atlantic and giving Togo it's first big band since the 1970's.
