Native Afrik Band

A virtuoso collection of Ghanaian musicians known as Nativ Afrik is lead by the multi talented drummer and composer Emmanuel Amponsah who through his musical offering explores the traditional sounds of the seprewa and kologo. The band started its mainstream media career on the release of its debut EP titled DON’T TEAR FISH in 2017. 2018 awarded them first prize for the YAMAHA E Band Competition where they became the first Ghanaian band to win the world music competition. The following year Nativ Afrik grabbed the Higher Achievement Award for the Western Music Awards. They represented Ghana once again in Benin in 2020 and won the Modern Music of Traditional Inspiration which is considered to be the grand prize for the SICAs.

Nativ Afriks debut album KARMA features world renowned Cameroonian bassist Etienne Mbappe , gifted South African singer Simthandile Mtolo and the one of Japan’s greatest bassists, Ryunosuke Makino.
The band creates a melodic hybrid of compositions inspired by ancient Ghanaian folklore and stories passed down from generation to generation, teaching and instilling morals and values. The music takes you on a journey through African percussive and rhythmic elements, infusing diverse styles of kologo music, Highlife and Afrobeats, Jazz, Funk, World Music and Reggae.
