In stock

Six Strings and a Note is a compelling and relevant portrait of the artistic life of Daniel Kwabena Boa Amponsah, known around the world by his stage name, Koo Nimo. Written with a curiosity, simplicity, and a keen memory for detail, the book takes us on a journey through Koo Nimo’s work as an artist, and also as a man with a deep affection for his culture.

From the quiet Ghanaian village where he grew up, to the popular concert halls, leading international universities and renowned institutions, Koo Nimo’s life is nearly a century of extraordinary subplots to a story of hope, determination, and a boundless love for guitar music.

Celebrated in his native Ghana for his infusion of traditional motifs into mainstream music, and his influence on the Addadam music styles and palm-wine guitar, Koo Nimo unveiled Asante culture to audiences all over the world.

A fine blend of a vivid recollection of a memoir and an authenticity woven into a biography to give the reader a richer encounter with Koo Nimo’s life lessons, challenges, and successes through his life and work.

A father, a poet, a folk musician, a teacher, and a philosopher, Koo Nimo would say, “I did not set out to become another [Andres] Segovia. All I have is my culture, my story and my song, and I have to do my best for the sake of a generation who will be listening and learning long after I am gone.”

A must-read for all international music enthusiasts.
