Ghanaian music continues to undergo a metamorphosis into what can only be described as awesome! From Osibisa’s early beginnings, Gyedu-Blay’s euphoria evoking baritone voice and trumpet to Efya’s soulful, powerful yet peaceful voice, Sarkodie’s tongue twisting antics to Pappy Kojo’s funky Fante bars, Worlasi’s language chasm bridging afrobeat raps and songs, I daresay this is a revolution and all praise to technology, the revolution is being televised, at least on the internet anyway.
That can be quite the chore but perhaps no more. Curtains parted, spotlight on, stage smoke rising, silent anticipation, onto the stage, Adomaa.
We’re excited about CHALE WOTE 2014 and we can’t wait to see all you fine people out there show up. We have a lot of amazing things happening at this year’s event with an incredible slew of creatives who are sure to blow your mind.
Just like last year’s event, we’re holding a film festival where we’re showcasing what’s new, hot, fresh and upcoming on the continent and beyond, by talented African directors, from all over. We’re showcasing some awesome films you most likely haven’t seen yet, as well as premiering new films and documentaries. Have you seen the incredible Coz ov Moni by our homeboys, the FOKN BOIS? What about Blitz the Ambassador’s Native Sun, Terence Nance‘s phantasmic An Oversimplification of Her Beauty or Giacomo Pecci’s evocative Try and See? You also get to watch a set of stunning music videos that we’re bumping, plus catch up with ACCRA [dot] ALT’s activities.
Get the entire gist here.
