News: Ghanaian Artisit Ata Kak Announces His Very First US Tour


Beginning March 21 in Los Angeles, Ata Kak and his band finally land in America to perform the legendary cassette Obaa Sima.

Ata Kak’s cassette Obaa Sima fell on deaf ears when it was self-released in Ghana and Canada in 1994. Following an eight year search, Awesome Tapes From Africa tracked down the mysterious singer with a cult internet following and re-released his album in 2015. On the heels of extensive critical acclaim for the reissue, Ata Kak began performing live in 2016, storming stages at Sónar and Glastonbury festivals, among many others, backed by his London-based band.
