At the launch of the International Jazz Day Festival in Accra last week, the president of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), Bice Osei Kuffour aka Obour, called on Ghanaian musicians and music fans to embrace jazz music.

According to him, jazz music encouraged artistic innovation, improvisation, new forms of expression and inclusion of traditional music forms into new ones, adding that it also stimulated intercultural dialogue and empowered young people from marginalized societies.

In a cultural sense, Syncos music, which is being recognized worldwide, is more important than just music, and will soon take over from jazz music as a number of renowned music stars have adopted it.

Syncos music is an audible and living representation of African history, philosophies, ethics, spoken literature, moral values, and social code of conduct, religious beliefs, political thought and aesthetic principles coupled with the emergence of a global village.

“Syncos focuses on music with its cultural authenticity from Ghana, embracing change and bringing attention to a community grossly unrepresented and also offering something unique yet broad to the different media outlets into the mainstream contemporary music,” said Kofi Amoakohene,  Global Professional Achievers  Award Winner for Entertainment.

Teddy Osei of the world renowned Osibisa group and Hugh Masekela are known to be the pioneer and father of Syncos music genre respectively, having had hits on Billboard magazine’s world music charts.
