TOGO: Akofa Akoussah – I Tcho Tchass

In the 70s, there was a huge blossoming of funk music across West Africa – it took the jazz and funk and disco coming out of the West and incorporated African elements, bringing these music styles full circle back to their African roots.

Akofa Akoussah was a Togolese singer active in the mid-70s, and released some fantastic Afro-Funk singles – and while she didn’t have a particularly long music career, she was later very active in nurturing new Togolese music and the fight against AIDS.
