Today we visit Berlin to introduce you to “No Problem Saloon, the sophomore album from OY, a multi-cultural experience created by Swiss-Ghanian vocalist/musician Joy Frempong, and drummer/producer Lleluja-Ha.

This is a versatile album that weaves African rhythms and experimental beats into worldly pop songs based in stories and parables learned during Frempong’s travels throughout Africa.

It was also during these stops in Mali, Burkina Faso, Ghana and South Africa when she collected ambient audio sounds that ended up being used as instrumentation for the compositions.

Check out the video for “Market Place”

No Problem Saloon” is already available as an import, and will be released stateside on June 17.
