Afro Moses gears up for Obra Spot

Australia-based Ghanaian music star, Afro Moses, will perform on Saturday, March 8 at the Obra Spot, Kwame Nkrumah Circle in Accra as part of events marking this year’s Celebrating Accra Arts Festival (CAAF).

The concert, which will also mark the International Women’s Day, will feature guitarist Akablay and the Abiza Band.

Formerly based in Denmark, Afro Moses is a singer, composer, multi- instrumentalist and teacher. He has a penchant for charming audiences with his high-energy music, relevant social messages, showmanship and colourful stage shows.

A multiple award winning and well-travelled musician, Afro Moses’ music is a tasty blend of reggae, funk, blues, jazz, ragga, salsa and more.

Akablay and his Abiza Band will spice the evening’s event with their brash mix of rhythms from the Nzema area of the Western region with jazz and highlife.

DANIDA, Ghana Denmark Cultural Fund, Royal Danish Embassy in Accra, Accra Metropolitan Assembly, Goethe-Institut, British Council and the Alliance Française are supporting CAAF 2014, which is being organised by the Institute for Music and Development.
