In 2002, Brian Shimkovitz purchased Obaa Sima, a cassette of lo-fi tunes by Ata Kak that combined broken pieces of synth-pop, early hip-hop, and African highlife, from a roadside stall in Ghana. Six years later, when he finally got around to listening to it, it became the inspiration behind his beloved blog and label Awesome Tapes from Africa. It took even longer for Shimkovitz to track down Ata Kak to re-release the cassette. But now that it is widely available, the word is out about this one-of-a-kind artist and the buzz about his US tour is loud.
