Guy One

During the Cosmosis concert series, you’ll regularly hear unique pop music from all corners of the non-western world. For the duration of the series, EKKO gives stage space to artistes from diverse under-represented countries. On 25 May, it’s the turn of Guy One, a real super-star in Ghana. Guy is a virtuoso on the kologo, a hand-made, two-string lute. In his live performance, he’s accompanied by two Ghanaian background singers and members of the German band The Polyversal Sounds. And 23 June sees a visit from the Togo All Stars. The band will arrive all guns blazing, with singers, brass and percussion. So what can you expect in terms of music? A mix of jazz, pop, afro beat, funk and voodoo.
