Alliance Française Accra presents the second edition of ‘Eha Ke Zan’; a musical concert by sensational traditional musician; Osagyefo Louis on Wednesday 27th April 2016, La Paillote Stage, Alliance Française Accra at 7.30 pm.

For this month’s La Paillote Takpekpe, Alliance Française Accra presents EHA KE ZAN; a musical festival that blends several art forms including music, dance and fashion by traditional and salsa musician; Osagyefo Louis.

EHA KE ZAN is from the Ewe dialect which literally means ‘the convergence of music’ as the festival is a blend of traditional and salsa music.

DSC0781640-200x300Born in Ghana in a family of musicians with his father being a percussion player and dancer, Osagyefo, as he is popularly known, started to sing at a really young age. Working for years in the show business industry he finally decided a couple of years ago to launch his musical career. His singular style combining traditional Ghanaian music – such as ‘agbabza’ and salsa rhythms will undoubtedly make you dance.

Osagyefo Louis, who has been working with Alliance Française Accra for several years now as a sound and light technician, has always had a strong passion for music. After a successful launch of his first album;  “Conviction”, in April 2015, Osagyefo will be at it again this year as he performs some songs from his album along with a fashion show and Salsa dance.

This is the second edition of a music festival he began last year and intends to do it annually. Last year, it was a blend of music and salsa dance. Adding to the excitement this year is a fashion show and the presence of renowned instrumentalist (keyboardist) from Togo; Frank Gbgedema. Also performing will be famous Salsa diva from Togo and mentor to Osagyefo; San Sipio.

‘The audience should expect to see a new system of singing with a different form of groove. ‘I want people to know that I am not only good back-stage controlling the light and sound during events but also excellent when it comes to stage performance too’, he says.
