About this event

The Linda: WAMCs Performing Arts Studio welcomes back live audiences for the first time in over a year with a celebratory concert featuring the joyous PAA KOW Afro-fusion Orchestra.

PAA KOW is currently sold to full capacity due to the COVID-19 safety restrictions on venue capacity and social distancing guidelines. If these guidelines change prior to showtime, we will re-open sales. Thank you.

Having toured internationally, sharing stages with both African and American luminaries including Kojo Antwi, Amakye Dede and Victor Wooten, Ghana born drummer and composer, Paa Kow, (pronounced Pah-Ko), blends rhythm and artistry from his home with jazz and African roots creating his own Afro-Fusion sound. Dubbed "Ghana's most artistic drummer" (Modern Ghana), he plays a custom, hand-carved, traditionally inspired Ghanaian drum set that is the only one of its kind in the world, guaranteeing an extraordinary cultural and musical experience.

Growing up in the small village of Enyan Denkyira near Cape Coast in Ghana, West Africa, Paa Kow began to play music and tour with his family’s concert band at a very early age. He has since grown to be widely recognized as one of the most remarkable drum set players to tour in Africa, Europe, and America. Paa Kow’s deep groove and prodigious talent reveal a unique ability to speak to listeners with his drums, inspiring a profound spiritual conversation and fulfilling his vision to spread the music and culture of his homeland by touring the world with his Afro-Fusion Orchestra.

A restricted quantity of seats will be available to maintain social distancing guidelines. All seating will be socially distanced in sets of two in order to comply with current health and safety guidelines. Fully vaccinated patrons will be allowed to attend maskless and unvaccinated patrons will be encouraged to wear face masks. Seating and common traffic areas will be socially distanced.
