In the Adaawe musical tradition of southern Ghana, Ga women gather together in the moonlight to raise songs and share the triumph and sorrow of their daily lives. Through constant improvisation, they breathe new life into ancient music. Their spirit of celebration and strength is the inspiration behind ADAAWE.
As an acoustic vocal and drum powerhouse group, or a full Afro-fusion dance band, ADAAWE has headlined performing arts venues, festivals, colleges and clubs across the U.S., and opened for such artists as James Brown, Ladysmith Black Mambazo and Los Lobos. ADAAWE's latest CD, "Passage," is an arresting collection of world-fusion, ranging from their trademark vocal percussion and djembe drum rhythms to Afro-funk, reggae and world pop. On CD or in concert, you do not want to miss the evolution of ADAAWE.
