Bio


Afro Moses is a multi-award winning, international artist from Ghana, West Africa. He is a singer, composer, multi-instrumentalist and teacher with a magnetic personality who has enchanted people with his high energy music, powerful messages, showmanship and colourful stage shows around the world. A tasty blend of Afrobeats, reggae, funk, jazz, raga, salsa, percussion, traditional vocals and much more.
Using traditional African instruments (eg. the kora, mbira, gonde, talking drum, balafon etc - Afro can play 14 in total) and blending them with modern grooves and technology to create a fusion of hot rhythms that no one can resist dancing too! Every audience is invited to interact with the band from vocals to dance moves and hand percussion instruments which creates an amazing party atmosphere. The stage shows guarantee to uplift, transport, inspire and move all involved. Dance, jump, sweat and shout!

Afro Moses became a teenage star in Ghana and was soon producing number one songs and was the first young performer featured on the national news. He was given the nickname "The African James Brown" for his funky music and dance style that was popular at the time. Soon after, Afro Moses was noticed by one of Bob Marley's tour Managers and taken to Europe. The same man who took Youssou N'Dour out of Senegal. In Denmark, he immediately made his mark taking out several awards such as Best Album, Best Song and Best Live Act. From there, he took his all Danish band "Moses O'Jah" and toured the world, including some of Europes biggest music festivals.
Afro Moses has shared the stage with numerous iconic artists such as Miriam Makeba, Salif Keita, Ziggy and Rita Marley, The Wailers and many more. In Denmark, Afro Moses was also involved with the National Theatre Company, teaching in schools and universities and performing with several bands and orchestras.
Afro first visited Australia at the end of 1999. His tour, which consisted of his band coming directly from Ghana, was sponsored by Triple J and was the biggest tour of any African performer in Australia. The band were featured on ABC TV - Studio 22, Recovery, The 10.30 slot, as well as The Morning Show with Bert Newton and numerous radio stations across the country.
Next, the band were invited back to perform as part of the 2000 Olympic Games, where they performed at some athletes welcoming parties, and as part of the closing ceremony celebrations at Darling Harbour which attracted around 20,000 people.
Afro Moses has continued to visit Australia more and more over the last eight years due to his popularity and offers of performances, teaching and projects.
