The Legendary Gyedu Blay Ambolley from Ghana, West Africa has 29 albums to his credit. The 29th album was released in June 2015.  Ambulley, affectionately known as the "Simigwa Do Man", was born in the port city of Sekondi-Takoradi, in the Western Region of Ghana, West Afrika. The multi-talented, International, Ghanaian Musician celebrated his "Silver Jubilee" in music in 1998.  Ambolley's early years of musical interest dates back to the age of eight, when he began playing with his father's flute until he was able to teach himself how to play. His formal musical training came at the age of fourteen under the apprenticeship of "Uncle Bonku" who taught him the guitar. The young music enthusiast continued to learn the rudiments of music from the late' Sammy Lartey and Ebo Taylor.  This versatile, irrepressible singer, songwriter, producer, and "musical-life-force" exploded on the music scene in 1973 with jazzy highlife sounds called 'SIMIGWA-DO'. Ambolley's name has become synonymous with Simigwa music and dance since his first hit single was released in 1973.
