Temple EP Listening at Lokko House

Temple EP Listening at Lokko House

We are glad to be back hosting events at our space albeit with a few changes and adjustments. Our last event before the lock down was all the way back in February. Who knew things would change this much.

Since then, we just had an EP listening session with our very good friend & dope artist Temple GH. If you’ve ever been to one of the listening sessions at our space, you’ll realise we are all about the experience & HUMAN interaction.

You can check out the first video released from the EP. A personal favourite here at Lokko House, Bars for Days. Wooo!

Tokyo was feeling the sounds.

This time around we had to observe social-distancing protocols, sanitising of hands & nose mask/face shield wearing. But that didn’t spoil the fun one bit. Temple came through with back to back bars, punchlines, deep dope lyrics and a witty play with words. He also doubles as a DJ, not rap though, but house music.

Temple telling us about his House Music influences.

We sent out invites to a few folk we were sure would most definitely show up (we didn’t want a super packed place). All in all it was a cool event. A chance for us to relive those times we use to have mad linkups before now.

12 Days; An African Lifestyle Event

Our luxury sister brand, Elle Lokko in partnership with some of our stocking brands put together a sales event dubbed,”12 days”. A unique sales event aimed at showcasing contemporary lifestyle brands, 12 days was coined after the famous Christmas poem/song “12 Days of Christmas”.

The event which was held in “The long room” next to our warehouse had on deck brands like Osei duro, Threaded Tribes, 87 Origins, I Am Isigo and many more. With the idea of the 12 days concept in mind(where a loved one gets a special gift every day till Christmas) the sales discount started at 15% on all items and increased steadily till the 12th day at 50%.

It was a mellow and fun experience for both brands and shoppers alike. A curated experience worth recreating again in the near future.

Another Hip Hop in Ghana Playlist feat. DJ Vimtinz & Temple

Our team in collaboration with our cultural influencer friends from Accra City Nice put together a playlist listening session dubbed “Hip-Hop in Ghana playlist”. The idea was to have a block-party style listening session where the audience gets to jam and rave to mad Hip-Hop tunes. Turns out that’s exactly what happened; the situation was LIT!!. We had cool and virtually new acts like Kwadjo Spiri, Jo Esko, Yung Bazz among others come to perform much to the pleasure of the crowd. Temple of Pata Camp took us through some of his favourite Hip-Hop songs and kept the energy high with his dope freestyle performances. All in all, it was a really good event and the folks that came through left the place with a memorable experience etched in the back of their minds. A podcast of the discussion we had during the event is available on the Accra City Nice Soundcloud page.

 

 

 

 

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.

Welcome to The Void

It’s 2008 and Accra was a very different city.
Take a moment to think of all the things we didn’t have back then.
Remember a time when everything was just an idea
and our creative minds were still asking themselves
what
was
possible.

 

Follow this exhibition for the next 10 days.
It is a mixed media experience that combines the use of space, sound and video
to jog your memory and take you back to, and through,
2008 – the year we opened
right up to today,
10 years later in 2018.

The final reveal of the entire exhibition will be an installation on the

19th of December, 2018 at The Container Accra.
Drinks and bites after at Front/Back.

Welcome to our past,
see you in our future.

there’s some audio gems
in our soundcloud playlist here
for an even more intense experience.
close your eyes,
headphones in,
ready, set…
time travel!

 

ok ok we get it.
you need visuals…
here goes…
