Ozi Ozaa

Magic Mirrors Spiegeltent, Aotea Square


Complete your Festival summer with the irresistible afrofunk sound of master musician Yaw Asumadu and his brilliant 11-piece band.   

Moving to Aotearoa in 2018 after a stellar career around the world, Ghanaian native Asumadu has quickly made a name for himself on the music scene here as a drummer, composer, African flautist, bass guitarist and xylophone player of the highest order. 

Asumadu is now joined by a Kiwi collective of musicians, who inject his mixture of funk, jazz, highlife and traditional African beats with new local flavour. Ozi Ozaa means “work and happiness” – a simple motto that promises dancing, singing and smiling for all those who come along.
