Dogo du Togo, “Soké Wo”
Tetouda Records

Massama Dogo is known for singing in the local Afro-pop

 

band Elikeh but he’s been releasing solo singles as Dogo du

 

Togo since late 2016. His singles are largely aimed at folks

 

back in his native homeland of Togo, and his latest, “Soké

 

Wo,” is no exception. Recorded in Togo, the song adroitly

 

layers a mournful call-and-response vocal duet between Dogo

 

and the Association Mokpokpo chorus overtop a stripped-

 

down groove based on a traditional rhythm of the Ewe

 

people. This isn’t a boisterous party number; it’s a soulful

 

lyrical plea for forgiveness.
