Reimagining African folklore by creating exciting and futuristic versions is the theme for CHALE WOTE Street Art Festival 2013. Everything points to a classic show this time around. The festival has over the last few years challenged the music and art space in Accra in a super-funky urban way.

For the first two years, the festival was organized as a whole day’s event. It is a major attraction for tourists, art lovers, musicians, graffiti + mural artists, poets, and musicians – and basically anyone who appreciates or has a curious mind for art made in Accra.  This year the free festival will be running for two (2) days at its signature venue, James Town, on September 7th and 8th, 10am – 9pm.

IND!E FUSE 2012: Tawiah’s in the Building [Accra]

TAWIAH

TAWIAH

We’re literally freaked that TAWIAH is rocking IND!E FUSE this year on Sat. Dec. 15th at Alliance Francaise. We’ve been fans for a stone cold minute now – ESPECIALLY after she made jaws drop and tongues seize at PY Annan’s Bless the Mic Christmas Concert in 2008. And it was on an impromptu tip at that, chale.

Bold, out-there-somewhere chords, funky confidence and a laid-back spirit. Did we say we’re amped?

Tawiah’s back in Ghana for the first time in four years and boy, has this London gal been busy. She’s worked on tracks with literally everyone – including Cee-Lo, Wale, Eric Lau, GhostPoet, Smiler + Professor Green and Mark Ronson among a slew of other dope artists.
