Immy Owusu and Afrodelik
Immy and his band are described as 'ridiculous and deep' (Nkechi Anele, Triple J) 'unique and individual' (Forte Magazine) and 'bursting with good vibes' (Happy Mag). In late 2019 they packed out their show at Queenscliff Music Festival in between The Cat Empire and Hiatus Kaiyote’s sets to max capacity. Immanuel Kwabena Dreessens-Owusu (Oh-woo-sue) is on a journey to find meaning as a multi-instrumental, mixed-race, semi-bogan, old soul/man-child. Hailing from Torquay, Immanuel grew up living and learning in two worlds; the Australian coastal rock scene and the West African culture of his Ghanaian roots. His Caucasian friends consider him quite ‘ethnic,’ his African family thinks he’s too ‘bogan’ and his music reflects the melting pot of all the pieces that put him together. Wishing to explore the origins of Rock ‘n’ Roll, he travelled to Ghana to study under his grandfather, a highly renowned Ghanaian Folk musician. He returned to Australia with an electric brand of African Psychedelic Rock. Immy’s debut single “Danger” was premiered on Triple J's 'Roots 'n' All' program and at Port Fairy Folk Festival in March 2019.
