ANNOUNCING…Derrick N. Ashong & Soulfège

Posted on

ANNOUNCING… the group Derrick Ashong & Soulfège will be participating in GMGE!!!

Their sound is like “Bob Marley meets The Fugees on a street corner in West Africa.” Their style synthesizes an eclectic blend of hip hop, highlife, reggae, funk, and world beat, which they dub ‘World music/AFropolitan fusion.’

Soulfège was formed by Derrick N. Ashong and Jonathan Gramling when they were students at Harvard (Derrick is from Ghana). Derrick garnered a publicity boost when an unplanned street interview during Obama’s election campaign turned him into a “YouTube phenom” (read about it in the New York Times). He hosts a TV show on Al Jazeera English. The group has appeared for the likes of Obama, Oprah and Bill Clinton.

Take advantage of of their Million Free Download campaign and cop their latest album ‘AFropolitan’ here. More on their Facebook.
