At the Best Western Atlantic Hotel at 7pm, the Osibisa band will treat patrons of the event to their criss-cross rhythm that they are known across the world for.
Organised by S.M. Mensah Enterprise in collaboration with Westline Entertainment, organisers of the Western Music Awards, this event is priced 70gh.
Osibisa was formed in London, England in 1969 by Teddy Osei, Sol Amarfio and Mac Tontoh, together with Spartacus R (Grenada), Robert Bailey (Trinidad), Wendell Richardson (Antigua), and Lasisi Amao (Nigeria). The Ghanaian members already seasoned highlife artistes in Accra before moving to London to launch their attack on the world stage. They were joined soon by Darko (Potato) Adams and Kofi Ayivor on percussions.. Osibisa is the biggest band to come out of Africa. Their type of music known as the criss-cross rhythm became an instant hit globally. The group toured the world with their own genre (criss-cross rhythms) and enrolled new members wherever they go, hence their existence up till today. In 1986 Alf Bannerman, Victor Tof-Mensah and Bessa Simons all from Ghana were the new generation that joined the band. Teddy Osei says “Osibisa is now a worldwide institution not a band anymore”
