The ideological application of Pan-Africanism is essential and crucial to the inner peace and growth of all Africans because it serves as a holistic, liberatory mechanism for all Black people in the African Diaspora. Abibremu Band exists solely to use music – Pan African music to highlight the uniqueness of the African and promote unity in achieving the freedom and development we badly need.
The 9 members of this Ghana-based band perform lively modern urban music yet traditionally rooted in sub-Saharan west Africa. Abibremu Band plays a variety of local instruments: gourd shakers, gome, xylophone, West African double-headed, hour-glass ‘talking’ drum, trumpet, guitars, etc. Sung in mainly Akan and other Ghanaian languages with a fusion of English language, Abibremu’s tunes are cheerful and highly rhythmic and also speak to pertinent issues that face African liberation and growth. The pan-African instruments allow interesting arrangements and sounds, ornamented by guitars, traditional drums, and trumpets. This is a joyous, exciting Pan-African band whose tunes and message will bring smiles and (at least), nodding heads and tapping feet.
