Asa Baako 2014 Review

Asa Baako "One Dance" 2014

With the huge support we received from the crowd funding campaign, we were able to host another epic Asa Baako festival, which featured our biggest line-up yet of live bands and DJs from around Ghana, Nigeria and Europe. The festival kicked off with a beach party on Friday night - live stage on Saturday and the legendary Jungle party on Saturday night. Festival goers also kicked back and enjoyed the yoga, surfing and scenic walks that had been laid on.

Thanks to the amazing sponsorship support we received from Tullow Oil, we were able to run "The Wonders of Moringa" workshops to support the People of Busua in conserving the area's natural beauty.

The main stage was hosted by Mutombo da Poet and Kojo Blakk featuring live music from both local and pan-African artists, kicking off with the Mag2 Army Band bringing a mix of reggae and highlife as people watched on the beach. Busua resident Lawmaker brought the audience together, before Veronny Odili gave us her soulful sound to a beautiful African sunset.
Jungle Party DJs T-Roy (UK), BBrave (USA) and Sanse (FRA) were joined by DJ Nyce (GH), West (GH), and Max le Daron (BEL), who played through the night in what guests were calling one of the most unique party locations they’d ever experienced.
Captain Ghana mixed things up with his acrobatics and magic, before Lord Caliba brought his reggae vibes. Teddy and Kyekyeku kept the crowd hyped, before Atongo Zimba gave something completely different with his stirring kologo driven Bolgatanga sounds.
Asa Baako got fired up on the Friday with a huge beach party, at Kangaroo Pouch with DJs T-Roy (UK) and BBrave (USA) playing azonto, afrobeats, house, hip hop, future funk and everything in between, to an audience of people from Busua village and around the world dancing side by side.
 
To the audience’s dismay, the rain came down and stopped the highly anticipated performances of MzVee, festival advocates the FOKN Bois, and Nigerian Afro-beat fusion band, Villy and the Xtreme Volumes. However, that didn’t stop the audience from hitting the jungle party.
Festival goers took part in other activities such as yoga and massage, scenic walks and talks from local shoe designer, Rastaman, while the festival provided workshops for Busua villagers in Moringa soap making and Moringa Tree planting in order to help conserve the natural beauty of the area.
