Soul, jazz singer, songwriter, producer, artist and cinematographer Myles Sanko grew up in Ghana but later moved to the United Kingdom at the age of eleven.
Son of a French finisher man and Ghanian business woman, Myles was born in Accra shortly after the 1979 violent uprising that arose out of a combination of corruption and bad governance at the time. He spent the most part of his early years moving across West Africa due to the gruelling nature of his fathers work. After a hard live of near poverty, and alcohol taking over his father life, leading to the breakdown of his parents marriage, his mother decided to move to Cambridge to start a new life.
Myles says “Growing up in Ghana was very magical and humbling at the same time, with every movement in life having it’s own rhythm. I was surrounded by all types of music, traditional Ghanaian music, reggae, funk and a lot of soul. My mothers side of the family were very musically talented and I believe that’s where my love for music came from”
As a child, his first taste for music came from countless hours of playing the djembe with his uncle, whom at the time was a chief drummer and taught him the rhythms of their African ancestors. Myles then found a love for hip-hop in his teens and begun to study the art of rapping. He soon started writing and sampling old school funk cassettes and recording mix-tapes which he sold to friends every time his visited family back in Ghana.
