The collective's 11th studio album, A Trip to Bolgatanga, is named after the town in northern Ghana where group leader Bonjo Iyabinghi Noah resides. Though he typically spends more time at home with his family, he still frequently performs and creates music. The first African Head Charge album in 12 years was produced by longtime associate Adrian Sherwood and features fellow On-U Sound regulars like Skip McDonald and Doug Wimbish, along with guest appearances by Ghanaian kologo master and singer King Ayisoba. It kicks off with friendly words of advice ("A bad attitude is like a flat tire, you can't go anywhere until you change it!") and retains this sense of encouragement and optimism throughout. A Trip to Bolgatanga gets as sunny and upbeat as African Head Charge's live performances or their more polished studio efforts from the mid-'90s, but it maintains the spirit of experimentation and love of speaker-crushing bass they've had since the beginning.
