Akwaaba (“uh-kwaa-buh”)…meaning “welcome” in the Akan language from Ghana, Akwaaba’s vision is to use traditional African drumming and music as a tool to promote harmony and cultural understanding within the West Australian community.
Established back in 1996 by Kofi (Paul) Osei, Akwaaba has been entertaining a wide variety of audiences for over 20 years with energetic, powerful and interactive performances, drum circles and workshops. Our use of traditional African hand drums and other percussion instruments bring alive the rhythms of Africa.
Coogee Live would like to thank Akwaaba African Drumming for being a Collaborator with the festival, making this show possible.
