Release Party Osagyefo (Ghana)
Wednesday August 8, 2007 from 21.30 till 03.00 in Bitterzoet (Amsterdam)

Black Star Foundation is releasing their first album on Black Star label. That definitely needs a celebration!

The CD 'Blaze Fire' is the debut album of Osagyefo (Ghana) and it's recorded and produced in the Netherlands by our own producer Asher E. On the album Osagyefo (Ghana) works together with many different musicians, like Tuff Lion (Bambu Station, Virgin Islands) and a few different artist from Holland like the horn section of Out of Many and (backing)vocals and percussion by Lady K-Wida and Billyman of Poor Man Friend.

The monthly event of Black Star Foundation in Bitterzoet ('Bass Culture') will be all about African reggae this time! Off course we will present the album 'Blaze Fire' to the public (for sale for only 10 euro!), but there will be live music as well.
