The Ghanaian master drummers are back, infusing styles and instrumentations from their own Ga tradition with impeccably groovy rhythms and an irresistible modern flair. Their recent in-house fusion project, with former Ministry of House DJ Rebecca Vasmant, has seen them layer their music with digital beats and bass to extraordinary effect.
The Kakatsitsi Master Drummers from Ghana are one of Africa’s leading traditional drumming groups. Over their 12 UK tours, including appearances at WOMAD, Glastonbury and numerous folk festivals, they have wowed audiences with their combination of funky, accessible dance grooves and five part harmony singing.
