The name Yaaba Funk comes from an album called Yaba Funk Roots, the only album ever released outside of Africa by Captain Yaba, a musician from northern Ghana and exponent of the 2-string 'guitar' called the koliko. The band has gigged extensively around London and the UK, building up a loyal fan base with their exuberant live shows and have also performed in Europe and Africa. Their debut album "AFROBEAST" was released in May 2010 by Sterns Records. Remixes by DJD and Richard Olatunde were also released in 2010 by Here and Now Recordings.
