Paa Kow is an internationally renowned drum set player, bandleader, composer, and producer. Growing up in the small village of Enyan Denkyira near Cape Coast in Ghana, West Africa, Paa Kow began to play music and tour with his family’s concert band at a very early age. He has since grown to be widely recognized as one of the most remarkable drum set players to tour in Africa, Europe, and America. Paa Kow’s deep groove and prodigious talent reveal a unique ability to speak to listeners with his drums, inspiring a profound spiritual conversation. His songs are captivating and danceable and incorporate lyrics in his native language, Fante, as well as English. Paa Kow’s vision is to spread the music and culture of his homeland by touring the world with his Afro-Fusion orchestra. Notable musicians he has shared the stage with include African greats: Amakye Dede, George Darko, Kojo Antwi, Nat Brew, Hugh Masekela, and Vusi Mahlasela, as well as American greats Victor Wooten, Brad Goode, John Gunther, Michael Kang, and many more.

Portland’s favorite Brazilian soul band POPgoji, has existed just over two years and is already on regular rotation on KMHD. This 7 piece band delivers non-stop soulful booty shaking, with Brazilian percussion, vocal harmonies, unique syncopated strings, and trumpet. POPgoji is recreating the community energy of a Rio-style pagode jam session, packing dance floors with familiar lyrics and hot Afro-Brazilian rhythms.
