MANADi, which means "sit & share together" in his Sisaala dialect, is from Tumu,
an African village in the Upper West Region of Ghana. Manadi is a humble & soulful artist
who speaks to audiences through positive, socially motivated & political songs.
An insightful songwriter who walks the line between Roots Reggae & African Zongo music
(sung in English & language). Manadi's life in Africa was devided between Nigeria & Ghana,
where he was exposed & influenced by the indigenous Zongo' s of these regions.
In Ghana & throughout Africa, Zongo' s are known to be found in the ghettos.
Passionate about his culture & need to keep it alive,
Manadi' s music encompasses these beautifully rich & traditional Zongo flavours.
Zongo music traditionally incorporated balafon (xylophone), molo (2 string gourde guitar)
& kalangu (talking drum). Now living in Australia, additional Western instrumentation complement the traditional African with language, drumbeats & guitar rythms remaining untouched.
Manadi sings of his own enlightenment through songs that resonate universally.
His tracks explore human connection, daily struggle, positivity & embrace his enduring belief
in the transformative power of love in all of its incarnations.
