ACCRA [dot] ALT’s IND!E Fuse 2012 on December 14 & 15
The third edition of Accra’s coolest music event IND!E FUSE, is set for December 14 and 15.
“Music lovers who want a taste of imaginative, super fresh, and amazing live music should come out and jam at IND!E FUSE 2012,” a release issued in Accra says.
IND!E FUSE, the show’s organizers ACCRA [dot] ALT say “promotes great live music by young Ghanaian artists based in the country and abroad”.
“2012 is the third edition of IND!E FUSE. The concert is not an isolated event but a series of exchanges (one-on-one meetings, interactive workshops, studio + jam sessions) between Ghanaian musicians, as well as continental African and African diasporic artists.
“As a one-of-a-kind concept in West Africa, IND!E FUSE is a launch pad for African alternative music as a viable global industry that can create unique promotional products – mixtapes, music videos, short films, webisodes, wearable art and touring opportunities – for the artists involved.
“The show features the trendsetters of the Accra indie scene and a growing network of young Ghanaian artists that are causing international waves in music.
“ ACCRA [dot] ALT, a cultural network that encourages the alternative work of Ghanaian artists and emerging artists across the globe, closes 2012 with a two-day concert event on December 14th (The Republic Bar + Grill) and 15th (Alliance Française). Last year’s show was a sellout success and this year will be even sweeter. Come and witness Ghanaian and international artists create live sonic rainbows of edgy AfroBeat, electronic soul, drumbassfunk, R&B, true skool hip hop, and rare West African folk grooves.
“On Friday 14 December 2012, chill with us at The Republic Bar and Grill for a live DJ mashup with Kwaku Ananse, Jason Kleatsh and SanSe beginning at 9pm (5GHC to enter). Catch live performances by Ghana’s leading indie artists – Rumor, Looney, Holla Blak, Oga Chuxx, Eli, Steloo and Yaw P.
“On Saturday 15 December 2012, an eclectic set of musicians from Ghana and abroad will mount the stage at Alliance Française from 7:30 – 11pm.
“IND!E FUSE 2012 is headlined by FOKN BOIS (UK/Ghana), Tawiah (UK) and Yaa Pono. Fans can also wild out to performances by Jojo Abot (NYC/Ghana), Lady Jay, FaintMedal, Paapa (Skillions Records), Lyrical Wanzam and Zantou Lansre (Niger). The show is hosted by the Sankwas Bois and will feature a live DUSTLVYE (YFM) DJ Booth featuring the sounds of our resident Funky Professor, Mr. Kobby Graham”.
