The name AYORKOR may not resonate with many music fans at the moment. She is a young musician who’s charting her own course by taking a route that is becoming all too familiar lately.
In a new series by Musical Lunatics dubbed ‘Fret Board Series’, Ayorkor shares her beautiful voice with the rest of the world by mashing up two songs: ‘Boboli’ by the legendary Ghanaian folk group Wulomei and ‘Nwa’ by Nigerian highlife kingpin Flavour.
In this 4mins, 32 seconds, Ayorkor, who belongs to the Musical Lunatics- a band led by music producer and guitarist Nii Quaye- serenades with this unforced exhilarating display.
The accompanying video captures the expressions of both Ayorkor and her two man band- a guitarist (Nii Quaye) and a percussionist. The camera works, simplicity and sepia tone of the video makes it a must watch.
Music mash-up videos have in recent times, become one of the avenues for upcoming artists to court public attention and fans. The videos, if well promoted, does open avenues for the artists.
