Nii Buxton and the Asesegwa Band

10th Oct '17

The Power of Gratitude

”I had a dream about the rhythm, woke up and grabbed my guitar and felt blessed with this song. The song is titled Shidaa it is Ga language and means ´thank you´. Shidaa is a morning praise…it is about earth, heaven, mankind…thanking God for this all. You see, I have music in my blood, my dad is a guitarist and singer too. I was born and raised in James Town, Accra. This is where the Ga people live. James Town is Accra´s oldest district. It is a shanty town with colonial relics. A vibrant talent hub, full of life, smelly and noisy fishing village on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. I have never nothing to fear because I come from James Town.”

Nii Buxton is a guitarist, singer and songwriter from Ghana, West-Africa. He is the founder and leader of Asesegwa Band, an afro jazz fusion and African traditional music group.
