FRA!

Bio

The FRA! band is a music ensemble from Accra, Ghana which consists of young people from different backgrounds united by one language; the language of music. The name “Fra” comes from the Akan word which means “mix” and this is an analogous representation of the elements of fusion which is found in thier music.

The music the band produces is hinged on technical prowess, melodic phrasings, playful lyricism and progressive roots based on our Afrocentric heritage. The band has recently focused on writing its own songs. The band's first single, Dumsor (local Ghanaian word describing the recent pertinent power outages in the country), was released on 31st May, 2016 and their second single, Happy Yourself, was released on 26th July, 2016. The band currently has two albums to it's credit. 'FRA!TERNITY', which was released on 10th August, 2018 and 'JOURNEY' which was released on 17th August, 2019.

The band hosts an annual concert each year dubbed 'FRA!TERNITY CONCERT'. The band seeks to build an enviable career in music in Ghana and beyond through dedicated songwriting and production and eventually make FRA! a staple in contemporary music.

As winners of the 10th edition of Casa Africa's Vis-a-Vis project, the band toured Spain in July,2019 where they performed at music festivals which include Etnosur, Pirineos Sur, Canarias Jazz Festival, La mars de musicas, La Porta Ferrada, MAPAS, MUMES and Sin Sal.
