Searching for Francis Bebey

Or rather, his heirs. As noted in the first post in this blog (and discussed at great length in the comments), I would love to see Akwaaba reissued. Well, I've gotten a nibble on the idea from a label, and they're starting to investigate. If anyone can provide a mailing address or other contact route through which this label could discuss the options for reissuing, it would be greatly appreciated. If you can provide any assistance, please add a comment to this posting. We have the mailing address for Original Music from the CD, but haven't yet discovered whether it's still active.

Sorry, no music in this post. Soon come.

mostly Kidi
They are planning huge reissues of Francis bebey's work

Wow, thanks so much!! I've passed this along to my label contact. It sounds like it may be too late for them to get involved, but if Akwaaba will be reissued, that's cause for excitement -- and besides, maybe they need a U.S. partner...
