A child prodigy on the kologo, a two-stringed instrument with a calabash gourd resonator, King Ayisoba became an unlikely star in Ghana with the very traditional hit I Want to See You, My Father. Five albums later, he has won over audiences across the world with his trailblazing mix of drums, rapid-fire melodies, commanding looks and intense, urgent live shows.
WORKSHOP: In this workshop the remarkable King Ayisoba will explain about his kologo, a traditional instrument from Ghana's Upper East Region, which he inherited from his grandfather. He will also tell you about the other traditional instruments, including the dundun and kalebas drums played by his fellow band members. The story about how King Ayisoba got to play the kologo is a very interesting one and the band will, of course, play a few songs.
