The tour will involve performances and workshops, where the band is expected to showcase music and dance pieces rich in Ghanaian traditional and contemporary rhythms.
The management of the band told Beatwaves in an interview that the objective of the tour is to promote and market Ghanaian music in the States and bring key stakeholders together to support the cause of Ghanaian music.
A leading member of the band, Clementina Tenkorang promised that the much awaited tour would be a historic one, adding that the tour is a unique platform to celebrate Ghanaian music and culture on the international music platform.

The members of the band are determined to cut across all barriers to showcase their musical prowess.
Talking about their vision for 2019, the manager of the band Emmanuel Osekre, affirmed the band’s readiness to thrill audience and their fans during the tour.
