Join us for a concert with Ghanaian master musician Osei Korankye (Ghana).  

Osei Korankye is one of the very last remaining seperewa musicians in Ghana. The seperewa is an Akan harp, a forgotten cousin of the Sahel’s kora or ngoni. For centuries it was the melodic backbone to Ashanti and more generally Akan music, one of the key ingredients of highlife, but in the 20th century it was practically wiped out of Ghana by guitars coming from the coast. This event is in support of the record recently released by Akwaaba Music: http://www.akwaabamusic.com/osei-korankye-emmere-nhyina-nse/
