Ghanaian traditional act Asaah Atiah (Great Sawanne) born in Bongo(Bolgatanga) has set the pace to be the new face of Northern Music.Born in a family of music composers lead him also to follow the historical leads of his great fathers.
Biological parents Enko Atia (mother) and Atia Azozaih (father) all from the Northern Region of Ghana.
Asaah started farming at a very young age with his parents at 10.although he was prevented from taking part in such physical farming activities, the young gentle boy will still go in hard for it.
Others will call him “Farm boy with Calabash friend” because aside him taking farming very serious as his father does, music is never excluded once he gets hold his Calabash.
Educational background :
Very brilliant and active in school, but due to financial constraints,Asaah’s whole life depended on farming and music so he ended up at Primary 6.
Alot including his teachers and School administrators ,colleagues were not happy with his decision but he has to accept the challenge that since there’s no help from anywhere to support him further then he will have to do farm works to support buying some of his personal items and also support mom and dad.
The concept behind the name :
Branding is what differentiate ones Art and presence from others with unique style.
Asaahs choice of name ,Great Sawaanne(Saa which Means “Rain” and Wanne Means Calabash) was specifically chosen as he believes good names really works once you named after it.
Type of genre : Traditional Music has been his preferred genre because of the background and training he’s been given.
Everyone in this great life has got something special that keeps to motivate them in one way or the other but for Asaah “”Playing Of the Calabash has been his biggest Source Of My Motivation””. Anytime he comes closer to it hes spirit get satisfied and he feels it communicates more to him a lot.
