TUMI ANSAH & FRIENDS
(Ghana)

TUMI EBOW ANSAH, a native of Ghana, is an actor, composer, ethnomusicologist and researcher. He is also a folk musician and poet whose compositions are deeply rooted in ancient African traditions. His lyrics draw on social issues as well as the common joys of life.

While in Los Angeles, Mr. Ansa has been invited to perform for the American Guitar Society; California State University, Northridge; African Extravaganza at the University of Southern California; and at the California Institute of Technology. Mr. Ansa also performed at the opening ceremony of Black History month at California State University, Northridge. By pouring libations, he paid tribute to the ancestors and also played African folk music to traditional African stories. Most recently, he lectured and performed at Brown University in Providence Rhode Island.
