Green Door Allstars, Youth Stand Up, 2016
A collaborative recording project between Glasgow’s Green Door Studio, Lebeha Drumming Center in Hopkins, Belize, and the Tafi Cultural Institute based in Tafi Atome, Ghana. Young musicians spread across 3 continents joined forces to create a 10 track album released on Autonomous Africa, melting down traditional Borborbor music and Garifuna rhythms with Glaswegian contemporary productions to incredible effect. All proceeds from the album were then split to build recording studios in both Ghana and Belize. The title track presented here is a super-charged horn-led Soca stomper with infectious bounce.
