In early 2022 bandleaders Eric Owusu and Yannick Nolting went to Ghana to work on the first tracks of the upcoming sophomore EP.
Down in Accra they joined forces with Eric’s former bandmates from the Kwashibu Area Band.
In the well known Kwashiman area, Jembaa Groove teamed up with legendary producer and multi-instrumentalist Kwame Yeboahs at his Kwashibu Music Studio. The rhythm section was completed by iconic drummer Francis Osei and US-based Paa Kow.
The track features rising Sheffield – based Ghanian Singer K.O.G, who has become a household name in the UK Afro-Jazz Scene and who’s raw and powerful singing style Yannick and Eric thought would be the perfect match for this tune.
“Sweet My Ear” is about a new day breaking in. A new dawn. A new vibe and energy coming up. A hymne to sweetness. Received thru all the senses. The smelling, the tasting, the hearing, the feeling.
Symbolized thru the imaginary female energy/character, Yemanja, also known as the goddess of the sea.
