Hassan’adas – Asante Sana

R79.99Add to cart

John Hassan (AKA Hassan’adas) is pleased to announce a new album, Asante Sana. While the first album was driven by keyboards and a full drum-kit, Asante Sana uses percussion instruments and a grand piano and features a host of other instruments and skilled artists. It’s a concept album that leans towards the authentic and the acoustic. Listeners can expect new music with a pared-down sound played with the same energy and conviction Hassan’adas is known for. Enjoy a melting pot of influences recorded in a beautiful setting.

John Hassan is a sough-after percussionist, composer, arranger and producer who has been crafting his skills for over 20 years. He has featured on over 100 albums, performed on tours worldwide, and engaged in a long list of collaborations with local and international artists.
