Soul to Soul Reviews

  • Dec 05, 2015

    Denis Sanders' "Soul to Soul" is an awesome slice of history, when Black soul meets its own African soul in Ghana (and vice versa). The documentary has wonderful B-roll footage from Ghana in 1971 and brilliant performances of Wilson Pickett's "Land of 1000 Dances," Santana's "Black Magic Woman," Ike & Tina Turner's "I Smell Trouble," and other classic soul - alongside music from Accra Ga Royal Drummers, Ishmael Adams and the Damas Choir, Anansekromian Zounds and many more. The real cinch for me was to hear Africana Rhythmaires' (1966) "Odo Ye Wu" in the sound track. I have not heard that song in ages. Check it out here (on side b): http://youtu.be/wPF9lr8ectw
