Playlist Session with Shefroyan & Teochronic

Dance and movement has always been a part of music and rhythm, thus we turned our shop space into a make-shift studio with eccentric professional dancers Shefroyan & Teochronic. So, Instead of having mirrors like the way various indoor dance studios have, our display Windows became an impromptu screen for folks to see how the ladies got down(very sure they could see themselves from the inside aye!!). Dancing in a way connects the movement of bodies to the numerous vibrations coursing through this plane of existence, and yes these ladies showed us that. They even had quick dance tutorials for those in the mood to move & shake their bodies(We didn’t come here to play oo). As usual the house rules applied, drinks in hand and attentive ears to what the heck was going on. Their playlist included everything from the Afrobeats to old school Hip-Hop, which in a way captures how dance worms its way into all forms of expressive art. All in all, it was a really dope event and we look forward to doing something like this sometime soon. Thank you Ladies!

We're not here to play! The stories of our space need to be told properly, and we're committed to doing our part. Our monthly listening sessions is where the creative people in #accracity share their stories and playlist with other amazing people. The energy is organic and the conversations are real. Last Saturday's session with @shefroyan & @teochronic was something else. Watch out for the podcast and their playlist.

HipHop Playlist session with Yoyo Tinz

Our Hiphop playlist sessions with Accra City Nice are always lit!(No doubts about that!!), this time around we had Yoyo Tinz come through on the 4th of October with some jamming songs on their playlist. Honestly, it was kind of like a pre-jam party to the Yoyo Tinz festival that happened afterward. We got to listen to some new music from upcoming artiste Afrochale also from the Yoyo Tinz camp, yup! it was definitely good vibes.

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.
