V.A. - Soul to Soul (2004)
Soul To Soul was a concert held in Accra, Ghana on March 6, 1971 by an array of American R&B, soul, rock, and jazz musicians. It is also the name of a 1971 documentary film recording the concert.
Ghana, after declaring its independence in 1957, had made a variety of efforts to connect with African-Americans, some of whom — including Maya Angelou, W. E. B. Du Bois. and George Padmore — lived in the African nation for a time. In the mid 1960s, Angelou approached the government of Kwame Nkrumah and sested bringing a number of African-American artists to Ghana for the annual independence celebrations. Nkrumah was deposed before action could be taken, but when the American father-son team of Ed Mosk and Tom Mosk approached the Ghana Arts Council in 1970 with an idea for a concert, the Council agreed. A massive 1970 concert by James Brown in Lagos, Nigeria had prompted the Mosks' confidence in the idea. Of the musicians invited to perform, Wilson Pickett was by far the biggest star in Ghana, where he was known as "Soul Brother No. 2." (James Brown was, of course, Soul Brother No. 1.) Organizers also unsuccessfully sought performances by Americans Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Booker T & The MG's, Louis Armstrong and gospel singer Marion Williams. In addition, Fela Kuti was approached, but did not perform. The show was held in Black Star Square (now Independence Square) on the Gulf of Guinea and ran 14 hours, finishing at 6:45 a.m. with a gospel set by The Voices of East Harlem. Several at the show remarked that Santana, despite having only one black member, played the most "African-sounding" music of the night. Some have argued that the band's merger of Latin rhythms with rock music strongly influenced the development of Afrobeat. - wikipedia
