Okyerema Asante's highly sought-after Ghanaian disco monster, Sabi (Get Down), recorded at Omega Studios in Kensington, MD, and produced in collaboration with Oneness of Juju leader Plunky Nkabinde.

After touring the world and recording with Hugh Masekela, Lonnie Liston Smith and Oneness of Juju, Sabi (Get Down) was Okyerema's first solo record, released privately in limited numbers on his label Atumpan Records in 1980/81.

A legend of Ghanaian drumming, Asante has performed and recorded in the DC area for decades, including collaborations with Black Fire artists, sessions with a variety of jazz bandleaders, and solo albums recorded at Mapleshade Studios.
