I first head De Frank’s music when listening to ‘Afe Ato Yen Bio’ on an Analog Africa compilation. This music, so pure and sincere, sparked curiosity and joy deep inside that lifted me from some of my darkest days.

It wasn’t until years later during my research that I discovered ‘Afe Ato Yen Bio’ means: ‘New Life, New Beginnings’…

But I had to know, who was De Frank and where is he now? It is only with deep intent to thank him, be-it if only his family if Frank Kakrah has departed us, that I dedicate this time of my life. I hope sharing his music with the world will help me find him, and bring to others the joy that his music brought to me.

Not much is known about De Frank, but we aim to dig up his albums, find the people that knew him, and share his music and story.

Thank you to those who have helped me along my journey.
