    "Yaa Amponsah" is one of the oldest Highlife standards, with recordings dating back to the late 1920's. With lyrics praising the beauty of a woman, the song has remained a popular in the repertoire of Ghanaian artists throughout the last century. It fits then that modern Highlife master Ebo Taylor chose to perform the song on his latest album, the deeply personal Appia Kwa Bridge. With two complementary plucked guitar lines, the song is one of the most restrained yet disarming tracks on the album. Appia Kwa Bridge comes out in April on Strut Records.
