Boogie Down Nima Productions of Bronx, New York is set to host an explosive celebration of Ghanaian music and culture in New York City during the Ghana @52 Independence Day Celebration Concert on Saturday, March 14, 2009.
Last year hip life music enthusiasts coming from the entire East Coast were in attendance, marking it as the largest ever Ghanaian concert in U.S. history. The BDN Ghana Independence Concerts started as an afterthought at the Ghana @ 50 Independence Celebration about two years ago but has now become its biggest event and more than lived up to expectations last year, with the first time performances of hip life giants, Reggie Rockstone and Tic Tac.
Other performing artists included VIP, Manifest, Mensa and DJ Ice of the U.K. The National Council of Ghanaian Associations of New York (NCOGA) have been very supportive in making sure that Ghanaian indigenous music is represented in the United States of America.
This year's concert comes on the heels of last years performances by the heavy weights of hip life music. On March 14th, 2009, history will repeat itself again.
Another "first time in America" show will feature the electrifying, highly acclaimed, long waited performance of the King of African dancehall, "Batman Samini".
Samini Batman has just finished recording his fourth CD entitled "Dagaati" which means (Know Your Roots)." and also "killing" the airwaves with "The Movement". Samini Batman enchants audiences around the world with his raspy yet sultry, signature voice and dynamic performance of both old and new Hip Life and Reggae melodies.
Other Nigerian and West African acts are also expected to perform at this historic event. Ghana @ 52 Independence Concert in New York City attracts concert go-ers from nearby states such as Maryland, Virginia, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island and Washington D.C.
