Strong, new impulses from West Africa
A warm, earthy voice is the trademark of West African singer-songwriter Adjiri Odametey. Combining this voice with the sounds of native African instruments, such as the kora (African harp), the balafon (wooden xylophone) and the thumb-pianos kalimba and mbira. His music captivates listeners.
