Africa-rooted band Agorsor makes high-energy, spirit-filled music, overflowing with free-flowing vocals, innovative instrumental harmonies and contagious rhythms, all inspired by the vibrant sounds and emotions of Africa.


The band is guided by graceful singer, fine artist and dancer Nyornuwofia Agorsor (vocals, songwriting), whose acrobatic voice and movements are enhanced by talented instrumentalists Kofi Agorsor (Fine artist, songwriter, various instruments), Kofi Acheampong (Percussion), Emmanuel “Chico” Napour (conga), Julius Quaye (gome) Magaret Selasi Gbindey (bvs) and Dzimesah “Yoga” Boku (compositions, xylophone, flute, gome, conga, gonje).

Together, they create magical world music with flavors of funk, Afro beat, soul and jazz. Agorsor’s rich recordings show the band’s talent for experimenting with different styles and offer a blend of rare African percussion and acoustic instruments, with lyrics that tell wise stories about loss, love, suppression, expression, hope, discovery and the unending quest for understanding within African communities and around the globe.

HUGADEM is Agorsor’s debut album and is a collection of songs that celebrate the mysteries of the love and human connection to the spirit. HUGADEM – which in English is “The Absolute is Married to Me” – is eight passionate original songs about the many complex dimensions of the concept of spiritual presence. It illustrates members’ journey as Africans and humans navigating the complex world around them and finding profound meaning in nature, God and others.

Agorsor was formed in 2000, brought to life by the imagination of painter/sculptor, songwriter, composer, arranger and performer Kofi and painter, songwriter, dancer and multi-instrumentalist Nyornuwofia.
Nyornuwofia was raised in a musical household that nurtured her natural artistic talents, which have always been expressed through bright colors and playful textures in both the music and visual art she creates. As she grew and her worldview expanded, she continued to develop her skills as a painter and musician, learning about musical theory and visual art techniques while finding her own artistic voice.
Kofi’s clever use of pulsating colors in his paintings and sculptures have always translated into modern layers in his musical compositions and performances. Nyornuwofia and Kofi’s complementary approaches to art and storytelling have made for a natural collaboration and is what continues to infuse Agorsor with dazzling energy.
Agorsor performs regularly at many local and international events, forging genuine connections with audiences through multi-disciplinary performances that connect cultures and inhabit both the natural and supernatural universe. The group’s joyful live performances combine music with dance and visual art, showing the power songs have to transform the soul. HUGADEM was written and crafted at the band’s live recording studio in Accra, a sacred space that continues to give the band the freedom to explore new musical territory. The album was released on the self-titled label, Agorsor Records, which was formed in March 2018.

RAYE Shares Long-Awaited Debut "My 21st Century Blues"

Speaking on the release of her deeply personal first full-length album, the south London native emotionally shares, “My 21st Century Blues. My debut album. My ugly, complex, beautiful mosaic formed from broken pieces of glass from the last seven years of my life. This music is my medicine, my anxieties, traumas, and unfiltered thoughts. The music on this record empowered me to face my demons and has accompanied me through my bluest blues, crafted unapologetically and fearlessly with love and tears. Now I can only hope it might provide the same medicine it did for me for those who choose to listen. I can’t believe it is really happening – my first album.”
RAYE continues, “Some of these songs I’ve had for years that I’ve needed to express and share. Before, I was told it was too uncomfortable and that audiences don’t want to hear it. There’s no sonic through-line. It was just creating whatever felt right for the story I want to tell over it. It just feels free.”
Executive produced by frequent collaborator Mike Sabath (Selena Gomez, Lizzo, Camila Cabello), My 21st Century Blues showcases RAYE’s signature raw and honest songwriting on all 13 album tracks touching on her experiences as a young female woman of color coming up in the music industry to painful topics like sexual abuse, rape, body dysmorphia, addiction, misogyny, and even climate change.

My 21st Century Blues features the massive U.K. #1 hit “Escapism.” with 070 Shake, which has become a sensation around the globe where it’s currently charting Top 10 in 12 territories in addition to its rapid ascension on numerous Billboard U.S. charts including the Hot 100 (#22), Global 200 (#7), Rhythmic Airplay (#18), and Pop Airplay (#21).
