HUMANS of DJEMBE Part 17 – ODAI AFFOTEY ( Ghana / Perth)

“Drumming (and dancing) is my life, it is that simple.
I can never imagine my life without a drum in it! It is everything for me,
without drumming my life could have been so different and not in a good way.

I could have been involved in things that were no good for me because I had no other opportunities in my life in Ghana.
Drumming (and dancing) and performing came into my life at eight years old when I found myself with no family, the traditional masters in drum and dance who took me under their wing became my family.

My art has taken me around the world and I am grateful everyday for being able to share my culture with everyone through music. More fire!”
