ALBUM: Kwesi Arthur – “Son of Jacob”

On his debut album Son of Jacob, Kwesi Arthur taps into his ancestry to offer a representation of contemporary Ghanaian life – replete with its highs and lows.

Over fifteen tracks, the artiste born Emmanuel Kwesi Danso Arthur Junior channels his mellow voice while exploring the personal, familial and social.

From the reflective Silver Spoon, aspirational Paper and bass-heavy Winning featuring Vic Mensa, Arthur’s fluidity sees him weave multi-lingual flows between trap basslines, Afrocentric percussion and smooth pop melodies.

Showing a musical dexterity, the Tema native crafts jovial lines alongside Nigerian singer Teni on Celebrate before enlisting UK-based outfit NSG on the Afroswing Diamonds Dancing, blending Asokpor and Amapiano on Animal and infusing highlife on the Gospel-tinged closer Adom.
