Biography

Many Cultures One Sound: EMASHIE!
The sound of EMASHIE prooves how powerful rhythm can be. And when the groove hits, you can be shure that everybody is dancing! EMASHIE is a Ghanaian word meaning "something which lasts forever" - once you heard the typical EMASHIE sound, you'll never forget it!

Switzerland, Brazil, Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe, Spain - seven musicians with different roots and different musical backgrounds meet and then create Afrosoul, the music of EMASHIE. It is a unique mixture of traditional African drum music, funk, latin, reggae and soul. Instead of playing a normal drum kit, EMASHIE uses plenty of percussion instruments from Africa, Brasil and Cuba.

EMASHIE plays traditional African drum music, songs composed by the band and some covers, all of them arranged in the unique Afrosoul style. An art critic wrote after an EMASHIE performance: "EMASHIE lives with and from the mixture which they create with their huge collection of instruments. Although the listener gets to know the different elements of the sound, with every different track however, the combination offers you a whole new musical experience."
