About Amos Gabia:

Amos Kwaku Gabia is a professional musician from Ghana, West Africa. He made New York his home in 2013. At an early age, Amos was introduced to music and started performing with the Noko Yedzen group. He plays a variety of instruments including the djembe, dun dun, kpanlogo, flute, and asalato. Amos is a founding member of Saha and performed with the award-winning Salaka Ensemble. While living in Ghana, he led programs for groups of travelers from around the world interested in learning about West African culture through its music and dance. Amos has toured extensively throughout Australia giving workshops for school groups and adults. Two summers ago, he returned to Ghana and led a series of workshops with Global Leadership Adventures. Amos is currently working on another tour to take place in the near future. Through the power of his drumming and the passion he has for music, Amos makes audiences and students fall in love with music from his homeland. Amos teaches through outreach programs at Third Street Music School and Brooklyn Conservatory of Music. He performs regularly with Drum Café and for community groups and educational institutions throughout the Tri-State Area.
