EXPECTATIONS: It's practically impossible to go to an African show and not expect a little bit of participation!
Presented by: MANADi LOPA
MANADi, which means “sit & share together” in his Sisaala dialect, is from Tumu, an African village in the Upper West Region of Ghana. Singing in English and language, his vocal variability along with his passion for “zaman lafiya” (peace) have become Manadi’s trademark. His influences; the indigenous Hausa speaking Zongo’s who traditionally played the kalangu (talking drum), balafon (xylophone) and molo (2 string gourde guitar) can be heard in the sweet tunes. This intimate show will be performed by a quartet of guitar, bass, African drums and percussion. Incorporating his seven languages he sings stories of agriculture, happiness and life in the ghetto. Bolstered by catchy choruses that stick with you for days, his messages have an ability to positively transform the mind.
