The Kusun Ensemble
The Kusun Ensemble is an extraordinary group of musicians and dancers based in Ghana, West Africa. Founded by Nii Tettey Tetteh, the group includes past members of prestigious performance groups such as The National Ballet and The Pan African Orchestra. Although rooted in traditional music, the ensemble has created innovative rhythms and dances by fusing bass and lead guitar, electrifying jazz and African rhythms, and traditional Ghanaian instruments. In their quest to develop a new style of Ghanaian music, they have been dazzling audiences in Ghana and around the world.
The band is now considered one of Ghana’s most innovative and powerful music and dance ensembles. By blending the authentic sounds of traditional instruments with the exuberance of highlife music and the complexity of African jazz, they are bringing the tropical passion of West African music and dance to the world stage.
