  • Closing Concert . Nana Osei & Band

The young, talented harpist, singer, percussionist, and dancer Nana Osei grew up in Ghana, where he mastered the art of the seperewa (a Ghanaian harp). He inherited the deep-rooted musical traditions passed down through generations within his family. Nana Osei studied Ghanaian music and dance at the Music Department of the University of Winneba (Ghana) and later delved into the traditional music and dances of the Akan people. In addition to playing the seperewa, Nana incorporates the subtle sounds of the mbira (thumb piano) during his performances, along with various other percussion instruments such as the thigh and water calabashes, the Ghanaian percussion box, and bamboo percussion. While his musical roots are in Ghana, Nana Osei is building a thriving artistic career from Ghent today. His musical repertoire includes a range of genres, including Highlife, Palmwine, Akom, and Kundum music.

The Afrika Film Festival Ghent is an initiative of the Africa Platform of the Ghent University Association in collaboration with De Centrale, Senegal Bantamba, KoumaLink, S-EAU-S SAHEL, HOURRA!!! Burkina Faso, and of course, the Afrika Film Festival Leuven.
