KING AYISOBA & BAND (GH)

Friday 04.07.14 - 16:00 - Gloria

One of Ghana’s strongest music profiles right now is called King Ayisoba. He’s currently on tour in the West with a full band of singers, musicians and dancers from his home country.

Their traditional music is based on a two-stringed lute known as the kologo. In the company of his brother – who masters a distinct North Ghanesian hunting horn – King Ayisoba has developed his own bony blues full of enchanting rhythms, call-and-response vocals and hoarse beauty.

At the same time King Ayisoba is also a modern artist aiming beyond the African horizon. The Ghanaian has performed with members of The Ex, Danish dancehall icon Pharfar and at the recently much talked-about Copenhagen venue Mayhem.
