Ghanaian Spoken word artist Koo Kumi takes us to the mountains with his latest poem “Ankonam“, which takes inspiration from palm wine music.
With his deep soothing voice, Koo Kumi solemnly speaks. The instrumentation in Ankonam is purely traditional, it has a palm wine music rhythm. Taking the local route with this whole poem,it is done in Akuapem Twi.
“Ankonam literally means someone who walks alone, ‘lone wolf’ or a ‘lonely person’. It talks about how a loner seeks to be courteous in life and not emulate the actions of peers and their pressure. Although he is alone, he is hailed by many.”
“The loner in difficult situations, look up to the sweat on his father’s face and the smile on his mother’s lips. He admits the road is rough and would gladly accept help if any comes his way nevertheless, he will still push through if there is none.”
Koo Kumi is set to release another Album but before that, sit back and Listen To “Ankonam”.
