Roger Damawuzan aka “Togo’s James Brown” began his career at the end of the 1960s and a few years later had his definitive breakthrough with the hit “Wait For Me” whose seven-inch vinyl is considered a holy grail for vinyl fans all over the world. Damawuzan was the one who introduced the Gazo, Akpesse and Kamou rhythms into modern soul music and created a whole new style of funk. He is also considered a strong influence to Togo’s modern style of hip-hop and electro.
Today, Roger Damawuzan is making a grand comeback across the world with the album Seda. In Damawuzan’s native language Mina, Seda means “listen”, something that should not be interpreted as an advice or suggestion but as an order!
The concert at Fasching on November 9 during Selam Festival Stockholm will be Roger Damawuzan’s first ever in Sweden and we can expect one of the most danceable nights of the year!
