Kelenkye Band's 'Moving World' Album is sadly their only record, but it's so good you can buy a near mint condition copy for about 770 Euro's. Ha! Someone at the excellent Comet Records saw fit, back in 2000, to add the albums highlight 'Jungle Music' to a compilation of Afrobeat goodies called 'Bilongo - A Third Collection Of Modern Afro Rhythms'. Now if you could only find a copy of the compilation. 'Jungle Music' is pure groove, coming from Ghana, Kelenkye's Afrobeat is all warm and fuzzy shebeen Funk, it plays right into the idea that Ghana is 'the heart and soul of West Africa', the rest of the album is good too... Check it...
