»Artists off the Mainstream« (En)
M3NSA & Wanlov the Kubolor, M.anifest, Okhiogbe Omonblanks Omonhinmin (Moderation), Poetra Asantewa
The rapper M.anifest, the poet Poetra Asantewa and the experimental duo FOKN Bois are all artists from Ghana who do not make Afropop, which has been the absolute mainstream in Ghana for decades, instead having chosen a more experimental path. Nevertheless, or perhaps precisely because of this, the three acts – all also performing live at Pop-Kultur – are successful in their own way in their very musical country of residence. In this talk, they give insight into Ghana’s alternative music scene, which has developed into a young, inspiring and revolutionary melting pot in recent years. Joined by Nigerian host and interdisciplinary producer Okhiogbe Omonblanks Omonhinmin, they talk about their paths and personal experiences and discuss what it’s like as an artist to break with musical traditions, to bring in political views and to create new genres.
