Bayardstown Social Club says
Osei Korankye is one of the very last remaining seperewa musicians in Ghana. The seperewa is an Akan harp, a forgotten cousin of the Sahel's kora or ngoni. For centuries it was the melodic backbone to Ashanti and more generally Akan music, one of the key ingredients of highlife, but in the 20th century it was practically wiped out of Ghana by guitars coming from the coast. For this rare event, Osei will be joined by Colter Harper, Jeff Berman, and Lucas Ashby for a night of Ghanian music

Colter and Osei worked together for 2 years in Ghana on a record recently released by Akwaaba Music: http://www.akwaabamusic.com/osei-korankye-emmere-nhyina-nse/
