Akwaaba! (Welcome)

I wish I had known all the Spiritual Truths I know now when I was 3 years old. For growing up in the Tafohene’s house in Kejetia, Kumasi, Ghana and in Techiman, Ghana, the rule of behaviour for all to follow was:

Is what I AM doing making everyone’s lips go up to heaven?

If it is then keep on doing it!

Is what I AM doing making everyone’s lips go down to Earth?

If it then stops it!

As well as playing and teaching guitar, since 1993, I have been teaching traditional African drumming, dancing and singing in over 200 schools in the United Kingdom.

I focus my teaching on three specific rhythms from Ghana:

  1. “Kpanlogo” (shortened to "Klogoh”) which is the traditional social rhythm of the Ga people from the southern region of Ghana

  2. “Agbadza” (shortened to “Abaja”) which is the traditional rhythm of the Ewe people of Ghana.

  3. Adowa” which is the traditional rhythm of the Akan people of Ghana.

My aim with my music is not only to portray Africa in a different light to the political and economical instabilities, coorruption, wars, famines and poverty associated with Africa and to let people know about the beautiful and loving side of Africa but also, through music, seek to change the CONSCIOUSNESS of the people of Ghana and Africa, thus taking Africa from an era of superstition, fear, greed, wars to a New Era of PEACE, LOVE, LIGHT, ABUNDANCE, BEAUTY, PROSPERITY and JOY.

Not only do I seek a complete spiritual change of Africa but also I seek people from all parts of the world who feel in harmony with my truth and feel they can assist in this change — mentally, emotionally, physically, financially or spiritually — and create a bond of perfect understanding between all people on Mother Earth.

Not only do I seek a complete spiritual change of Africa but also I seek people from all parts of the world who feel in harmony with my truth and feel they can assist in this change — mentally, emotionally, physically, financially or spiritually — and create a bond of perfect understanding between all people on Mother Earth.

For: We are all Children of God (WAACOG).
