Love in the Accra City with Tommy WÁ

With February being the designated month of love and all, it was just right that our friends from Accra City Nice put together an event centred on the theme of love. The whole idea was to explore the concept of love in the Accra city, the various facets through which it is expressed whilst enjoying sounds from indie artiste Tommy WÁ and later shaking our bodies to the beats of DJ Flavour.

As always the creatives from ACN changed the format and setting of this event from the previous ones. Instead of the usual indoor setting where the guest can interact with the performers in an enclosed environment, Maweuna, Kofi, Eric & co turned the space in our shop into a cool band stage. The whole set-up was simple and had an indoor-outdoor feel to it (like a movie screening outdoors).

Love in Accra city is an exploration of the different aspects of love expressed by creative people in the city of Accra.

Gafacci EP listening at The Warehouse

On the last Friday of January our buddies from Accra city nice hosted a listening session with pioneering afrobeats producer Gafacci. He shared some songs off his latest extended-play titled “Face the wall”. The EP is a five track body of work that give us a glimpse into immense and diverse talent the famous producer has for his craft.

A man of many talents, Gafacci told a rather somber story of the hurdles he had to overcome during the early phases of his music production career. A testament to the challenges music producers face in this part of the world; Gafacci took us back to the time when he had produced hits songs for artists like Dee Money, D-Black, Chase and the like yet had nothing concrete to show for in terms of financial stability. The place he lived at the time was directly opposite the wall of the L.A presby school, where students would shout out his name whenever they see him pass by(him being famous & all). Hence the idea behind the name of the EP “Face the Wall

He also touched on the business side of music and what is takes to thrive in the industry. Alluding to the fact that he gets 90% of his revenue from online music company bandcamp, he encouraged folks in his line of profession to know how to use whatever tools that are at their disposal to monetize their work. “Producers in this space who are respected are those who know how the politics within the system works”, he said. Also, the interactions with the audience birthed a vague idea of a platform for various producers across the country showcasing their music for like-minded folks.

As usual Maweuna & co held down the fort nicely, asking really interesting questions, and engaging with the audience too. All in all it was a fun night with drinks and laughter all round. We are so looking forward to the next listening session CHALE!

Drinks, snacks and back to back playback of good music, everything anyone expects from a good ol’ rave. Chale we speed!!

Yoga and Soul feat. Irene Donati and Ria Boss

We had a really interesting playlist session with yoga instructor Irene Donati of Yoga For Unicorns and the Queen of GH Soul, Ria Boss. They gave an insightful look into how yoga is practised (with a few breathing lessons obviously), a conversation on life, love & music as well as a smooth serenade from Ria Boss herself. It was a night of fun, music and drinks bringing the month of June to a beautiful end.
