----------------------------------------- Okoden Studio & Friends --------------


“OKODEN” in Akan language means “hard battle”.
OKODEN STUDIO is a collective of skillful musicians, molded on the philosophy that life is and will always be a sequences of battles to be won to accomplish ones divine purpose on earth.
We in OKODEN believe our maker has a divine assignment for each and every one on earth to undertake but it is and will always be a struggle to be able to fulfill it. We therefore find it our mission to use music to spread messages of consciousness and love for one another which to us is the only way out.
Just as in the ancient days, where musicians were needed just as soldiers on a battle field, we also believe one cannot go through this series of life battles without music, and a good one of course.

All musicians in this group were assembled by Emmanuel Boakye Agyeman popularly called Nana Boakye, a key figure in the International group Santrofi. Having toured over 30 countries across the world, he brings his rich savoir-faire garnered over 20 years in the music trade aboard to put together this group of musically dexterous individuals along this vision.

------ The GhanaFam Institute of Creativity -----------------------------------------------

The GhanaFam Institute of Creativity is dedicated to making lives of artists in Ghana more livable. The aim is to lay a foundation on which the creatives can realise their full potential.
This KalaBash Festival is all about visual art for us.

On the one hand, we have played around with the venue itself, to honour Sweet Mother as the sacred place where we are privileged to come together.

And on the other hand, we have been deeply immersed in the theme of the event. The result is an art exhibition by the artist couple dk love.
dk love is a union of opposites. The insights gained from conflict, confrontation and overcoming imbalance are used for their collaborative art projects. The artworks are intended to encourage people to get into a dialogue and question their own perspectives and cultural imprint. By doing this, we are able to function as a global community and can maintain personal relationships for the benefit of all.
