Revisit Ghanaian Band, Agorsor’s Sound Sprawling Debut Album ‘Hugadem’

Posted on

As they prepare for the release of their sophomore album, Ghanaian band, Agorsor’s previously released debut, Hugadem bubbles to the surface, inspiring as much appraisal as it did when it was released three years ago.

In 2018, the band captured the world music scene with the eight-track album with a dominant reverberating percussion-driven sound largely described as AfroWorld, one that pushed the album to the top of relevant music charts.

The band, led by Nyornuwofia Agorsor has over the years, refused to bend or fold, as tradition has become a feature that characterizes their artistry. On Hugadem, Nyornuwofia, who is also the brand’s lead singer captivated her audience by way of her versatile use of indigenous instruments ranging from the xylophone, flute, and other percussions.

Coupled with her vocals and the cohesiveness show off on Hugadem, they have given fans an important reason to anxiously expect a follow-up to the successful debut album. According to them, and in line with their values, the sophomore album, which they describe as a new utopia of sound and rhythm is titled, Global Warming.
