Kwamekaze Reggae's Bio

Kwame & Kwamekaze perform original roots rock reggae​

Musician/Poet Kwame credits his musical upbringing to his "elders" and the general environment of his home base in Ghana, West Africa, where his roots first blossomed. 

"There was drumming, and dancing, and of course singing," says Kwame. 

With his five-piece band Kwamekaze, Kwame hits the stage and lets you know that the African Roots Ambassador has arrived. He sings of the joys and sorrows of humanity, never forgetting his humility. 

The band has performed throughout the USA, Jamaica and Africa, and with the 2012 United Nations sponsored "International Year of People of Afrikan Descent" (IYPAD) tour. Kwame has shared the bill with notables like the Wailers, Third World, Mutabaruka, Pato Banton, Sonny Ade, Wailing Souls, Sonny Okusun and many others. 

Kwame has been the recipient of many industry awards and honorable mentions including: Martin International's Chicago Reggae Music Awards "Best Artist" and "Most Culture-Oriented Band". 

To educate and entertain, Kwame incorporates his heritage into the performance. "I feel education goes beyond the classroom. We bring culture to the people. We teach knowledge of the self," he said. Kwame has the advantage of dual residency which 

enables him to keep his finger on the vibrant pulse of reggae music here in the US and throughout the Diaspora. Kwame and Kwamekaze are reflective of a universal harmony: Bringing people together through music.
