ABOUT
Tsooboi Ensemble are performers of rich folk music and traditional songs in Ghana. They employ peculiar indigenous African instruments such as Jembe, Bells, Calabash sets, Kpanlogo and Ewe drums set, Fontomfrom and Atumpani drums.

The main caribbean instruments used are the steel drum and acoustic box sets. The above instruments are fused with Western ones like guitars (Lead & Bass) and saxophones.

The group's music and performance is heavily influenced by West African music; that is, singing drumming and dancing which is interlaced with some Western and Caribbean rhythms, generated through various instruments to create a new ideal sound which we call 'Bamboree Jazz' that can capture the imagination of global audiences.

Our motivation and inspiration comes from the idea of employing ralatively unknown musical instruments and the opportunity to project our African Heritage through our own created sound 'Bamboree Jazz'
