  3. mian title spelt "Wɔyaya" on front sleeve, "Woyaya" on labels. Barcode and Other Identifiers Matrix / Runout (Side A, label): 7-LNMG MDKS (MAPS )/5(54).
  4. Osibisa's second release. The title of this album is a word from the Ga language of the Ga-Dangme people of Ghana. Wɔyaya translates as "We are going".
  5. Osibisa combined the horns of Chicago with the rhythms of Santana, adding an African sound into the mix. "Dawn," "Music for Gong Gong" and "Think About the People" are just the best starting points on a solid album. What surprised me, though, was how strong the band's second album "Woyaya" is/5(46).
  6. Building impressively on the successes of their first album, Osibisa's Woyaya combines killer guitar playing in a classic rock or fusion mould (as on Y Sharp or Spirits Up Above) or delicate, gentle flute (as on Beautiful Seven) with the African rhythms of the band's legendary percussion section to create a true piece of world music, showing as 4/5(14).
  7. Jan 01,  · The first album Osibisa, was good. Woyaya has its moments. The beggining. But some of it such as 'move on' is a bit too busy. But this album is worth the price of the first three tracks and the finale fisrt three Osibisa albums occupy a special place in my collection, get played from time to time and have lasted the distance/5(56).
  8. A genuine party album, 'Osibisa' kick-started a long and memorable career for this most uplifting of groups, with their early-seventies albums such as 'Wowoya' and 'Heads' adding thick layers of jazz-fusion to their primary-coloured African-prog sound.
