Traditional Ghanaian music translated to the 21st century
Ghanaian singer King Ayisoba brings traditional Ghanaian music with a modern twist. Having been a start on his home country for years, the singer is now rapidly making a name for himself in the international music scene. Dressed in traditional Ghanaian garb he preaches and tells tall tales, whilst accompanying himself on a two-stringed kologo.
In earlier days Leon Caren (1978) doubled as musician and anthropologist. With his eye for culture and partnered with fellow band member Bas Morsch, he founded the Amsterdam-based music platform and magazine Subbacultcha in 2004. Taking on their next venture, We Are Public was launched in 2014. Today, as a co-founder and music curator, Leon selects outstanding and progressive music for the We Are Public programme.
