Daily Discovery: DOGO du Togo – soke wo ( The Dance Party )

“SOKÉ WO” is the new single by Togolese artist Dogo. The song is based on Akpesse-Bobobo rhythm played by Ewe people in the Region des Plateaux in Togo.
“The dance has its roots from Wusuta and in the ‘Highlife’ popular music across West African countries and is generally performed at social occasions. This is a social dance with a great deal of room for free expression so it became popular quickly.
In general, the men sing and dance in the center while the women dance in a ring around them. There are ‘slow’ and ‘fast’ versions of Bobobo. The slow one is called Akpesse and the fast one is termed to be Bobobo”.
