Alostmen

Bio

Alostmen are a neo-traditional acoustic band from Ghana made up of 4 musicians from different ethnic groups. Using traditional instrumentation in entirely new ways, their music is based around the Frafra traditions of the Kologo, a two-stringed lute, ancestor of the banjo. Alostmen comes from "a lost man", one who can’t easily be reached because they are always on the move. Alostmen won the SONGLINES Newcomer Award 2021 in the UK.

Stevo Atambire is a Frafra neo-griot and kologo master. His voice, music, and messages have made him very popular among his people.

Wanlov the Kubolor is an outspoken cultural icon of Akan & Balkan roots. He plays a few instruments, but his main ones are called koshka (pendulum maracas popularly known as asalato). He also raps & sings.

Abednego Sowah Ako is a Ga master drummer from La, a coastal fishing town. Sowah the gentle giant plays the bass-like gome drum, kpanlogo, other percussion, and sings Ga folk melodies.

Aminu Amadu is a dondo (talking drum) maestro of Hausa heritage. He can sound out any melody on his instrument and is a human metronome. He has mastered the polyrhythms & grooves of West Africa.

Alostmen were put together by award winning artistic director/producer Percy Yip Tong from Mauritius (Cyper Produktion) and award winning Ghanaian creator/producer Wanlov the Kubolor (FOKN Bois). Both truly believe Alostmen are ready to rock the world with their rare instrumentation and powerful afro rhythms.

Percy co-produced Alostmen’s debut album on his Koool Kreol record label with the help of Wanlov who recorded most of the tracks in hotel rooms in Kampala and Jinja (Uganda) as well as Wanlov’s studio in Accra (Ghana) and Stevo’s space in Namoo (Ghana). Highlife legend Gyedu-Blay Ambolley, Ghanaian stars Yaa Pono, Medikal, and Wanlov the Kubolor also featured.

In September 2017 Alostmen embarked on a West-African Tour produced by Percy’s Cyper Produktion. The Public and the media enjoyed Alostmen’s Afro-Trance music performances. So much so that their concerts in Ivory Coast, Ghana, Togo, and Benin were all great successes.

In 2022 Alostmen had their first Europe Tour wowing the audiences at Womad UK, Sfinks BE, Mera World Music Festival RO, to mention a few.

Alostmen are here to take us into the future with unforgettable music.
