This Is Kumerica: The rise of the movement from the Garden City Kumasi is a 20-minute documentary centered around the bubbling Drill scene rising out of Ghana.
Audiomack takes a deep dive into the artists and individuals shaping the culture and music that has garnered mass interest from people from West Africa and the diaspora.
Influenced by the rising drill scene in NY and the UK, Ghana has made its way into the conversation with the growing popularity of the Asakaa movement hailing from Kumasi.
With a growing sound that has captured the global attention of notable figures like Stormzy, Davido, Vic Mensa, Jack Grealish, and more.
Unlike other bubbling movements, the Asakaa is a lot different. Powered by guys from a small but spiritual city called Kumasi.
The driving force of the movement is their use of music to talk about their lifestyle and pride in their city.
There’s a distinct culture, language, and experience that only those on the inside who know would understand and very little desire to conform or fit in.
