The acclaimed My Vote Dey Count now available on on vinyl

The follow-up to 2010's Afrobeast finds Yaaba Funk maturing their high energy modern highlife-meets-afrobeat signature sound. Confident drums and percussion propel Yaaba Funk's dual vocal delivery as afrobeat horn sections stab off the beat making the infectious beat downright contagious. My Vote Dey Count covers all aspects of this Ghanaian focussed collective, with social politics never far from the surface, and a solid dose of African funk, it all comes together to form the unique and powerful sound which is ... Yaaba Funk!
