Description:
Dogtown Roadhouse presents a World Beat Dance Party with Land of Joy on Friday, December 21, 2018.

Nii Anang & Land of Joy is a five piece band led by master drummer and and multi-instrumentalist Nii Anang. They play music informed by everything from the sounds of Ghanaian folk music, to Afro-beat and the desert blues of Mali.

Nii began drumming at the age of 7 in his home country of Ghana, West Africa. He began to play professionally at the age of 16 with the Pan African Orchestra. Later, he was one of the founding members of the Kusun Ensemble which toured the United States, Canada, and Australia from 2000 to 2006.

He has educated hundreds of people on the hand drumming techniques of African drumming, as well as teaching other instruments, songs, dances, and about the culture that he experienced growing up in Ghana.

The other musicians in Land of Joy are all residents of Floyd County, VA and come from such diverse musical worlds as the New York studio and orchestra scene, traditional Appalachia, and the Atlanta underground, bringing influences from classical, roots-reggae, avant-jazz, and bluegrass to the mix.
