We are a team of musical collaborators supervised by Dave Yowell - founder of Amazing World Music.
Upon moving to London in 1972, his influences and musical collaborations became yet even more diverse, in that great cosmopolitan hot-house of musical experimentation.
During the 80's he also spent a couple of years touring around the Middle East where he bought his first semi-pro recording equipment, which was the seed that gave life to his recording and music production career.
In 1985, he founded the successful recording studio and production company Sultan Sound in North London (UK), where he recorded and produced many album projects that went on to be hits in Ghana, Ivory Coast, Sierra Leone, Nigeria and France.
From 1996 to 1998, he also worked extensively in Accra, Ghana, recording and collaborating with many well known Ghanian artists, where he absorbed the laid back Hi-Life, Palm Wine, Kpalogo and Afrobeat grooves that permeate most of West Africa.
But that wasn't all - in between his trips to West Africa, his eclectic tastes also led him into the underground / alternative / dance / house music scene, with his partner Jon Helmer - one of their hits being the 12" vinyl dance EP "Prayer Tower" under the artistic name of "The Paradise Organisation".
Dave currently lives in Salvador, Brazil where he is busy absorbing the wonderful musical diversity
of Brazilian music.
