Onipa

GBR (Londres)

Biography

A duo composed of Tom Excell (Nubiyan Twist) and KOG, aka Kweku of Ghana, Onipa, literally "human" in the Akan language, deliver music from London with Ghanaian influences based on electrified sanza (commonly called "thumb piano") and shangaan and soukous drum machines. From this smooth blend results an ultra-dynamic music which suggests that Onipa could be the worthy descendants of other seminal groups of Central Africa such as Konono n°1 and Staff Benda Bilili.
