April is marked in many places around the world as Jazz Appreciation Month. Let’s modify that into a celebration of an appreciation for our local GH female musicians. Today, we celebrate…
23. Sena Dagadu
One can take Sena out of Ghana but not Ghana out of Sena. Born in Accra where she started to imbibe her sense of music, Sena seriously started to immerse herself in music around 2001 in Budapest, Hungary and has continued to demonstrate her talent and versatility.
The albums released under her name are indicative of an act that knows how to hold listeners’ attention and can virtually fit into any kind of popular music. Her Ghanaian lineage and musical influences have, however, remained close to her heart and she has collaborated with several Ghanaian as well as African artistes. Ghanaian acts she has worked with include VVIP, Sarkodie, Worlasi, Reggie Rockstone, Six Strings, Edem, Wanlov the Kubolor and Mensa. She has also done songs with Nigeria’s Nneka. She’s cherished by many for her bold, experimental spirit that pushes her to constantly try out new ideas.
