Here are some funky Friday tunes to jazz up your cooking this weekend. I’ve had Y’akoto’s album Baby Blues spinning on my ipod for the past month and I can’t get enough. With a father from Ghana and a mother from Germany, Y’akoto grew up in Hamburg, Ghana, Cameroon, Togo and Chad, and today shuttles between Hamburg, Lomé and Paris. She says the most important thing is to tell stories with her songs. She does.
