ALOSTMEN – Mid-Summer Amphitheatre Celebration

ONLINE TICKET SALES NOW CLOSED. Tickets still available on the Amphitheatre door from 6pm.

Alostmen are a traditional acoustic band of 4 musicians coming from different ethnic groups in Ghana, using traditional instrumentation in entirely new ways. Their music is based around the Frafra traditions of the Kologo, a two-stringed lute, ancestor of the banjo. 

Join us to welcome the change in the seasons and celebrate the Summer Solstice. This performance will be in the Amphitheatre to soak up the evening sunshine. (weather permitting it will be in the barn)

Stevo Atambire (lead vocals) is a Frafra neo-griot and kologo master. His voice, music and messages have made him very popular among his people. Wanlov the Kubolor is a popular outspoken artist of Akan and Balkan roots. He plays the accoustic guitar and the koshkas (pendulum maracas popularly known as asalato), whilst also rapping and singing.

Abednego Sowah Ako is a Ga master drummer from La, a coastal fishing town. Sowah plays the bass-like gome drum, kpanlogo, other percussions and sings Ga folk melodies. Aminu Amadu is a dondo (talking drum) maestro of Nigerian/Ghanaian heritage. He can sound out any melody on his instrument and is a human metronome. He has mastered the polyrhythms and grooves of West Africa. 

Don’t miss their fiery blends of Ghanaian strings with stylish rap, percussion and trance rhythms!
