Rap, Vocals, Mbira | Ghana
Dubbed an “ambassador of modern African music” (beehype), Ghanaian singer/songwriter Delasi’s many talents manifest in his prophetic and conscious artistry ranging from invigorating performances, youth development workshops, community activism, and, most importantly, his music.
His most recent project, #ThoughtJourney, is a fusion of traditional Ewe music, soul, and hip-hop from the modern African male consciousness that has been hailed by Afropop Worldwide, Pulse, and Up Nairobi, among others.
Delasi’s social and political consciousness extend beyond his music, where he has served as guest lecturer at the University of Ghana, gave voice to local Accra youth to write and perform songs about the issues impacting their lives through the “Unheard Voices” project, and led similar workshops in Kenya through the US Department of State. Delasi has performed on international stages including the HIFA Festival in Zimbabwe and the Arbeitsamt Sommerfest in Berlin.
