Audiomack  Presents ‘This  Is  Kumerica’: A  Ghanaian  Drill  Documentary
Audiomack

In  the  early  2010s,  hip-hop  was  forever  changed  as  a  new  rap  offshoot  was  born  in  Chicago,  Illinois.  Since  this  era-defining  movement,  drill  music  has  reached  every  corner  of  the  globe  as  artists  adapt  to  the  prominent  sound  to  tell  their  depictive,  brutally  honest  stories  of  street  life. 

 

 

As  countries  like  the  US  and  the  UK  have  seen  drill  music  rise  to  commercial  success,  the  rest  of  the  world  has  taken  notice.

 

  

The  Asakaa  movement  shined  a  global  spotlight  on  Ghana’s  second-largest  city  –    Kumasi,  by  bringing  Ghanaian  drill  music  to  the  world  stage.  Created  and  coined  by  Sean  Lifer’s  Life  Living  Records  imprint,  the  sub-genre  has  transcended  the  country  and  continent  and  continues  to  expand  the  rich  cultural  lineage  of  Ghanaian  music.

Speaking  on  the  documentary,  Director  of  Brand  and  Media  Partnerships  at  Audiomack  Africa,  Charlotte  Bwana  said  “At  Audiomack,  it  is  our  constant  mission  to  push  African  music  and  artists.  This  Is  Kumerica  is  another  way  of  reiterating  our  commitment  to  promoting  African  talent  as  well  as  telling  African  stories  from  our  perspective.  It  is  important  for  the  culture  and  movements  to  be  documented  and  at  Audiomack  we’re  proud  that  we  were  able  to  put  this  out.”
