- Africa-rooted band Agorsor makes high-energy, spirit-filled music, overflowing with free-flowing vocals, innovative instrumental harmonies and contagious rhythms, all inspired by the vibrant sounds and emotions of Africa. The band is guided by graceful singer, fine artist and dancer Nyornuwofia Agorsor (vocals, songwriting), whose acrobatic voice and movements are enhanced by talented instrumentalists Kofi Agorsor (Fine artist, songwriter, various instruments), Kofi Acheampong (Percussion), Emmanuel “Chico” Napour (conga), Julius Quaye (gome) Magaret Selasi Gbindey (bvs) and Dzimesah “Yoga” Boku (compositions, xylophone, flute, gome, conga, gonje). Together, they create magical world music with flavors of funk, Afro beat, soul and jazz. Agorsor’s rich recordings show the band’s talent for experimenting with different styles and offer a blend of rare African percussion and acoustic instruments, with lyrics that tell wise stories about loss, love, suppression, expression, hope, discovery and the unending quest for understanding within African communities and around the globe.
- HUGADEM is Agorsor’s debut album and is a collection of songs that celebrate the mysteries of the love and human connection to the spirit. HUGADEM – which in English is “The Absolute is Married to Me” – is eight passionate original songs about the many complex dimensions of the concept of spiritual presence. It illustrates members’ journey as Africans and humans navigating the complex world around them and finding profound meaning in nature, God and others.
