Stevo Atambire in Ghana is a master of an ancient traditional African instrument, the kologo. His energetic and virtuoso playing style is complemented by his unique singing voice, exciting lyrics and the combination of traditional Ghanaian music with modern production techniques. Trumpeter Etuk Ubong is one of the most promising talents in contemporary Nigerian jazz. He has played with performers such as Femi Kuti or Victor Olaiya.
Nigerian Wayne Snow grew up in Paris and currently lives in Berlin. He is not primarily nourished by traditional West African and Nigerian musical traditions, with a much greater emphasis on contemporary electronic music, neo soul and hip hop in his music.
