Poetra Asantewa

Poetra Asantewa is a sensational balance of poetry, music, intellect and wit. Poetra is a multifaceted Ghanaian performer who combines smooth-like-butter neo-soul beats, lyricism informed by pointed social critique, and heartfelt vocalisation to deliver pieces that speak to the circumstances of topics like migration, feminism, mental health, and self-acceptance. Asantewa fuses her poetry and music to subvert the mainstream role of artists as entertainers only – by being unapologetic and unwavering in using her voice to question things more, observe things closely, explore and appreciate. With 1 album and 3 EPs to her name, Poetra has performed on different stages, festivals, events and places throughout the world.

In 2022, Oihane Roach was granted the tandem residency in Berlin and Accra, during which she collaborated with the artist Oihane Roach from Berlin. They presented a joint live show as part of Pop-Kultur festival 2022.
