Dubbed "Ghana's most artistic drummer" (Modern Ghana), 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.  Touring internationally with his custom Ghanaian drum set and his Afro-Fusion Orchestra,  Paa Kow brings concert goers an extraordinary musical experience filled with deep grooves and incredible beats.  Paa Kow has shared stages with many African and American luminaries including Kojo Antwi, Amakye Dede and Victor Wooten.

"Paa Kow has taken the world music of his native Ghana, and tossed it into a basket with heaps of American influences to create an album that the great purveyors of world music - the Paul Simon's and the Bela Fleck's of the world - would envy." - Marquee Magazine
