After Awesome Tapes From Africa’s Brian Shimkovitz found the energetic, ecstatic music of Ghanaian musician Ata Kak, the tunes became beloved around the world. It was all unbeknownst to the artist himself – even those living in his hometown in Ghana had barely heard it. Years of tireless searching ensued, and eventually the Los Angeles-based label owner found a lead.
Time Bomb follows the search that Shimkovitz undertook, as well as the visit to Ghana that took place once he found him. It is a celebration of great tunes and how, when it hits the right audience at the right time, music can touch people in a way that you never imagined.
