Edem Soul Music
Edem Soul Music originally born Edem K. Garro, was born in Maryland, and grew up in both the east coast and the midwest. Edem sings in her native tongue, called 'Ga'. ('Ga' originates from the Ga Tribe of Ghana, West Africa.) Growing up her parents made sure that she always remembered to understand where she came from, including the language!
They not only taught her the language, but the culture as well. One thing Edem's mother taught her, was that under no circumstances Was she ever to forget who she was, or where she come from.
As you listen to Edem Soul Music, you will not only hear the rhythmic African sounds of her djembes, or the angelic sounds of her voice, but you will also hear her identity, and hopefully find yours.
Teaching herself many instruments over time, Edem Soul Music, uses an eclectic mix of instruments, while infusing traditional african elements in her sound. From sampling traditional Ghanian music, to making new pieces of her own.
So, come enjoy a wonderful evening of story telling, african inspiration, and celebrate her new single release, 'A life Amongst Others'.
