Creative Director

Born in London to Ghanaian parents, Kojo comes from a background of digital music sound engineering, and teaching. During a meeting about a sound production course he had developed, he mentioned in passing, his personal interest in African drumming.

This led to him being asked to facilitate an African drumming class. The instant success of the first class opened up new, unexpected avenues:

“I discussed doing an African drumming class with my cousin Kwaku, straight away he got excited about it. We saw a niche in the market, and Ancestral Hands was born. It was really nice to be able to tie in our cultural background with a business opportunity”
