Juneteenth Day - Wazumbians
The Afro fusion group Wazumbians is a Ghanaian music group whose sound re-echoes the famous Ghanaian group Osibisa; famous for their pioneering role in world music around the globe. With musical directions from long experienced producer Wazumbi, this new band of long serving musicians is a spicy mix of catchy tunes served with ornamented rythmic grooves steeped in African traditions into one soul satisfying broth.
The band’s music is influenced by greats including Bob Marley, Salief Keita, Fela Kuti and Lucky Dube yet, for such a wide array of influence, they carry a coherent sound all carefully mixed together yet carelessly shared with their audience and listeners with great fun for equal measure.
The band has shared stage with great renowned artists such as Kanda Bongo Man, Ambuley, Part Thomas as well as other renowned international Bands. The band has also traveled to Europe for performances and recording of their third album in France. Wazumbians also toured the United States of America in 2022 where they played fifteen shows in different states, such as the FLIPSIDE FEST, ACANA FEST, SOB’s, AFROJAM, SHRINE, AFRICAN WORLD PEACE FEST and many more. The Wazumbians were awarded by the African World Peace Festival in America, they were also honored by the New York Police Department and the Mayor of Fayetteville North Carolina.
Much loved in their home city of Accra, the Wazumbians have helped bring back a vibrant live music scene in the bustling city. Rocking on Wazumbians!
