The 'Chale Wote' by Fra! Is a repertoire of songs marrying tastefully vintage sounds with modern themes blended with the musical backgrounds of each band member. The songs on this album are written in their now-signature feel-good, groovy and motivational style. "Chale" is vernacular for friend, buddy or acquaintance in Ghana and "Wote" is from Ga, a local language in Ghana meaning "Let's Go". Naming the album is thei way of telling thei listeners to come along and join them to have fun. There was no better way to depict this with this album cover where we have a minivan loaded with passengers flying through a portal. These vans which usually pick passengers along the way are popularly known in Ghana as "trotros", so named after the Ga word "tro". This is so because "tro" refers to three pence and the conductors used to ask for "tro tro" as that was the fare when these buses were introduced in 1940s colonial Ghana.
