Ebo Taylor & The Bonze Konkoma on Tour - January 2011
One of Ghana’s most prolific musicians, arrangers and composers of the last 50 years, ace guitarist Ebo Taylor will be back on stage with his band Bonze Konkoma. After their succesful debut last summer the group is back in Europe once more. They will be playing five exclusive concerts starting on Saturday the 15th of Jan in Frankfurt, Germany.
Bonze Konkoma, a 13-piece outfit, brings a unique and vibrant blend of Highlife, Afrobeat and Jazz, for which Taylor digs deep into Fante-Akan music like Asafo or Adzewa.
In musicians’ circles, Ebo Talyor´s name and style resonates with those of his Nigerian contemporaries Fela Kuti and Tony Allen. His performance will showcase once more the creative spirit and artistic accomplishment of this outstanding Ghanaian artist and bandleader.
