OneBeat Ghana Mixtape Out Now!

OneBeat Ghana brought together 11 young leading musician entrepreneurs from Ghana, Nigeria, and the United States to build strategies for stronger local artist communities and creative economies in the region. Led in collaboration with Black Girls Glow Founder Poetra Asantewa, musicians gathered for a two week intensive residency at the Stone Lodge in Osoduku and in Accra, incubating new ideas for locally based festivals, creative exchanges, community workshops, projects for cultural preservation and more. And during off hours and late night jam sessions, the group wrote and recorded furiously. The OneBeat Ghana Mixtape compiles 9 of these genre-bending tracks crafted during the residency, from hip hop to hiplife, afropop, techno, folk and beyond.

OneBeat Ghana is an initiative of the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) and produced by Bang on a Can’s Found Sound Nation with additional support from U.S. Embassy Ghana and the U.S. Embassy in Nigeria.
