Obo Addy Session for We Grew Wings Documentary

JULY 29, 2012


The highlight of working on the score for Sarah Henderson and Erich Lyttle’s documentary “We Grew Wings” was the opportunity I had to record Ghanaian master drummer Obo Addy.  We spent the day recording a composition of his to follow the on-screen section of Ghanaian runner Grace Bakari.  It was amazing to hear and watch him put together this composition in such a natural way. Here is what we did.
