In celebration of the cherished traditional festival of the Ga people, Homowo, the Association of Ghana Music Legends (ASSOGHAM L) will host the Ga-Dangme Homowo Musical Explosion concert on Thursday, September 7, at Authority, near the Nungua Senior High School in Accra.
The lineup of performers for this event includes Gyedu Blay Ambolley, Amandzeba, Naa Amanua, Lady Talata, KK Kabobo, Sammy Superstar, Adotey Tetor, and Pozo Hayes, all backed by the ASSOGHAM Band.
ASSOGHAM L, a welfare and advocacy organization for Ghanaian musicians worldwide, emerged after the passing of drummer Cici Frank in December 2019. Colleague musicians from Ghana and abroad came together to raise funds for his funeral in January 2020, leading to the creation of ASSOGHAM L.
The association aims to strengthen the bonds among Ghanaian live band musicians who have been active since the 1960s. Beyond supporting members’ welfare, it advocates for policies that benefit the general Ghanaian public.
With members located in various countries, including Australia, Canada, the United States, Germany, Denmark, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Cote d’Ivoire, and Ghana, ASSOGHAM L intends to organize similar events in other regions of Ghana during major traditional festivals. Additionally, the association plans to host non-Ghanaian bands for some of its programs and facilitate the exchange of Ghanaian bands performing abroad.
Sponsors of the ASSOGHAM L Homowo concert in Nungua include the Nungua Traditional Council, Kpoo Keke Beverage, and Chop n Chill Restaurant & Lounge in Kasoa. The concert is set to begin at 6:00 PM.
