The kologo is a two-stringed traditional lute of Ghana. The track Fauziah is about a girl by that name who sells a ginger and rice-based drink called Lamugin, popular in the north of Ghana. Both videos directed and produced by Wanlov The Kubolor. Watch Kologo too!
“The kologo is a 2-stringed predecessor of the banjo played by herdsmen/healers in mid-West Africa.” The first time I heard a Kologo play, was when I met King Ayisoba @ a music conference (probably Babel Med), where he was showcasing with a young Wanlov The Kubolor who’s a guest in the song above. Enjoy!
