Sparkling Tunes from Ghana's Afrocentric Fusion Band
FRA! is an eccentric band with an eclectic mix of sounds, melodic phrasings and progressive roots based on Afrocentric heritage. The name ' FRA' comes from the Akan Language ( a local Ghanaian language) and it means mix - FRA! stands for surprisingly fresh sounds mixed to dance-able and enjoyable feel-good music - from afrobeat, highlife to afrofunk!
FRA! was birthed in the heat of Accra and they channel this heat with them on stage wherever they go. FRA! is on quest to redefine live afrocentric music on the continent and beyond. 
FRA! is a band of excellent young musicians with high energy provide infectious songs and make the crowd dance after the first seconds on stage.  As winners of the 10th edition of Casa Africa's Vis-a-Vis project, the band toured Spain in July,2019 where they performed at some major music festivals like Etnosur, Pirineos Sur, Canarias Jazz Festival and many more...
In 2019 FRA! was a highlight at Visa for Music , ACCES and Stanbic Jazz Festival Ghana.
