Abibrem Gears Up For Canada Gigs

Members of the group


Members of the Abibrem Cultural Band are full of excitement as they intensify preparation for gigs slated for July in Quebec, Canada.

The Afro-fusion group, formed in 2018, is scheduled to play the Quebec concerts on July 27 and 28, 2024 before heading to Montreal and Toronto for further engagements.

Abibrem Cultural Band has been invited by Canada-based promoter, Mahama Soro, to showcase their vibrant style of music that embraces a variety ofapproaches from Ghana and across Africa.

The band’s motivation has always been to project music with a distinct African feel but which also appeals to audiences from different backgrounds.

“There are so many catchy rhythms in Ghana and Abibrem has tapped from several of them. They have welded them into solid grooves that move people to dance anytime they hear them. It is a beautiful cross-breed of ideas that deserve wider appreciation. That’s why I have invited them over to Canada to help ginger up the Summer for many people,” says events promoter, Mahama Soro.

Members of the band say they take inspiration from some of Africa’s greatest musical exports like Gyedu Blay Ambolley, Fela Futi, Salif Keita and Manu Dibango who have all blessed the world with their unique blends of African sounds.

With instrumentation that effectively combines traditional African percussion and string items with keyboard, guitars and brass instruments, the energy is always present in Abibrem Cultural Band’s presentations.

Depending on the items being tackled, the group could be complemented with dancers to go up to 15 members or a little more.

Dance is one of the ways that the band uses to get audiences involved with its performances. “Good artistic presentations appeal to all sorts of people and we are set to take thrilling packages to entertain Canada.

“Western and African musical styles have crossed paths for long periods and we know we have something of value for music lovers in Canada,” some members of Abibrem Cultural Band said with confidence.
