ONIPA means ‘human’ in Akan, the ancient language of the Ashanti people of Ghana. It’s a message of connection through collaboration: from Ghana to London, our ancestors to our children, Onipa brings energy, groove, electronics, afrofuturism, dance and fire!
Born out of deep collaboration between long time friends K.O.G (Kweku of Ghana of K.O.G and the Zongo Brigade) and Tom Excell (MD, guitarist and writer of acclaimed jazz/ soul/ afrobeat pioneers Nubiyan Twist), the 4 piece live show features K.O.G on vocals, balafon and percussion, Tom Excell on guitar, percussion and electronics, Dwayne Kilvington (Wonky Logic) on synths and MPC and Finn Booth (Nubiyan Twist) on drums.
Already booked for The Great Escape (Brighton) and the main dance stage (Kamikaze) at Shambala Festival, it’s a fresh, raw, fiercely energetic new sound, fusing electronics and deep afro grooves. Think Konono no.1 meets Shangaan Electro, Songhoy Blues and Débruit….
