Adomaa will rock the Alliance Française in Accra on Saturday, September 15 with tunes from her double EP ‘Adoma Vrs Adomaa’.
Also on the bill for the evening, which is expected to be a memorable one, are Afrobeat and highlife star Kidi, two-time female vocalist of the year award winner Adina, Afro-soul sensation Mayaa, rap heavyweights Kojo Cue and Shaker with Fra as the carpet band.
The year 2015 was a big discovery year for Adomaa, indeed, her mash-up video, ‘Evolution of GH Music’, a remake of old Ghanaian favourites from the 1960s to present day, spanning highlife and hiplife, went viral overnight.
The ‘Evolution of GH Music’ is in essence, a history lesson on Ghana’s musical history, layering popular hits by E.T. Mensah, Osibisa, Kojo Antwi, Rex Omar and many more in a sometimes sultry and mellow jazz mix and sometimes up-tempo rhythm.
In between, she throws in raps by Reggie Rockstone and R2Bees. It’s also a re-interpretation of these songs, offering a fresh new way of appreciating them. She is currently working on a number of songs.
