about

The latest single from Onipa, co-released on Wormfood Records with our Mawimbi family.

Maadi3 is a modern take on traditional Ghanaian highlife, written in the the style of a traditional folk story about 2 lovers, one of whom falls in the river and has to be rescued:

Ma diɛ! // Ma diɛ! // Ɛnyiberi // Yɛsi ɔdɔ atɔ nsio mu // Ɛnyiberi, mɛkɔ akɔyi ma diɛ // Ɛnyiberi ei!

My own my own - tonight // I heard my love fell in the river - tonight // I will go rescue her - tonight

A Ghanaian highlife classic, while its modern production and arrangement make for a true summer anthem designed for dancefloors.
