Kosmo Sound is a young musical initiative from Ghent. In October 2016, like-minded spirits Mattias Geernaert (former bass player with Compro Oro, Gentrifuge, graduated from the Antwerp Conservatory) and Marius Couvreur (drummer with Madame Blavatsky and RVB Quartet and student at the Conservatoria of Ghent and Malmö) came together with the aim of starting a new dub-inspired project. After a few creative meetings, they completed the line-up with Bos Debusscher (Pianist with Pura Vida, among others), Edmund Lauret (guitarist with Nordmann, The Milkfactory and graduated from the Ghent conservatory), Cyriel Vandenabeele (guitarist with Jantje, Midnight Bluebirds and student, among others) at the conservatory of Ghent and Antwerp) and Ambroos De Schepper (saxophonist with RVB Quartet, Gaspar, Mos Ensemble, Union and student at the Conservatories of Ghent, Brussels and Malmö).
From January 2017 they started performing under the name Kosmo Sound. The combination of a solid base of bass and drums with fresh narrative melodies caught the eye of the audience. This was followed by a series of concerts in Ghent, including memorable passages at the Copacobana festival and at the Ghent Festivities (Trefpunt Festival).
The band's ambition was clear and at the end of August 2017 a record was recorded in Studio Ledeberg with producer Peter Desmedt (sound technician for numerous projects including Beraadslaan, De Beren Gieren, Vuurwerk).
The Ghent-Ghanaian Reggaeband Seekaman brings its well-known mix of Reggae, African Highlife and Soukous. If homage is paid to the king of reggae, Bob Marley, in Ghent, Seekaman is the best choice to contribute to this. Even though the band has been moving more and more towards their Ghanaian roots in the last year, frontman Abaa Poliwa, aka Stick of Moses remains a rastaman in heart and soul. Surrounded by a multitude of top musicians, the band knows how to attract its audience like no other in the typical Seekaman (positive) vibes. Prepare for "A musical celebration of life" as only Africans can.
The Jamaican pop icon Bob Marley became world famous and introduced reggae to the general public. With his band The Wailers, he released several albums in the course of the 1970s and scored many hits including "I Shot The Sheriff" and "No Woman, No Cry". He died of cancer on 11 May 1981. A year before his death, the album Uprising was released, including his latest world hit "Could You Be Loved" and "Redemption Song".
