(Please note: This is an early show. Doors at 8, music around 9pm). Paa Kow is an internationally renowned drum set player, band leader, composer, and teacher of music. He has shared the stage with many 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. Paa Kow grew up in a small village called Enyan Denkyira near Cape Coast in Ghana, West Africa. He is widely recognized as one of the most remarkable drum set players to tour in Africa, Europe, and America. Paa Kow displays a unique ability to speak to listeners with his drums in a deeply spiritual conversation. His songs are captivating and danceable. The lyrics are a mixture of Paa Kow’s native language, Fante, and English. In an unforgettable display of talent, Paa Kow’s By All Means Band bridges the gap between Ghana and America. His band plays music that feels like rays of sunshine emanating from the stage and beckoning you to the dance floor! $8
