Ghana native Kofi Ghanaba came to the US around 1955. Under the name Guy Warren, he composed and recorded a number of albums that combined African percussion and American jazz. "Eyi Wala Dong" translates to "My Thanks To God," which explains the alternate title. Warren's original was subsequently issued on a single (Decca 30352) as "An African's Prayer (Eyi Wala Dong)."
