Florence Adooni GH

The queen of Frafra gospel invites you to an epic dance party

Directly from Ghana’s vibrant music scene, the queen of Frafra gospel invites to a dance party of epic proportions. Florence Adooni combines vital Frafra gospel and pulsating highlife with pop, jazz, festive horns, and lively backing vocals in an infectious music that is impossible to not dance to. During Copenhagen Jazz Festival 2024, she takes over ALICE with her 7-piece high-energy band. Note: The ticket sales start on January 11 at 3 PM.

Under the name “The queen of Frafra gospel,” Florence Adooni is one of the most prominent voices on Ghana’s vital Frafra gospel scene, where groups like Alogte Oho & His Sounds of Joy have also flourished. Nevertheless, what is truly special about Adooni is her ability to create encounters between tradition and innovation in her highly danceable music.

Adooni connects the life-affirming Frafra gospel with another of Ghana’s strongest and proudest musical traditions: a melodically and rhythmically pulsating highlife, where local Ghanaian traditions are combined with inspirations from pop, rock, and jazz, and not least, plenty of festive brass and lively backing vocals. She herself was born and raised in the Ashanti capital, Kumasi, known as the bubbling epicenter of the highlife genre.

Florence Adooni has released several albums in her home country and collaborated with the Ghanaian kologo virtuoso Guy One, among others. However, it was only in 2021 when she appeared as a guest on the hyped single ‘Vocalize my Luv’ by the Finnish electronica eccentric Jimi Tenor that the rest of the world took notice of her powerful voice. Since then, things have moved quickly for Adooni, who, on her debut tour in 2023, set Roskilde Festival’s Gaia stage in lively motion with an unforgettable concert.

Now it’s time for ALICE, where Florence Adooni, during the summer’s Copenhagen Jazz Festival, will fill the venue with her catchy music. Join in when Florence Adooni and her 7-piece all-star band of young highlife musicians invite you to an epic dance party in July!
