WeAreAnansi is an Executive Producer and Recording Artist from London and the creator of the music genre “Pwene”.
The name was inspired by his parents who refused to let him grow up in a foreign land and become a foreigner among his own; they ensured his books, toys, friends, history lessons and even down to the films he watched always represented him, giving him a sense of pride in who he was. A memorable book he read growing up was about Anansi The Spider, at a young age WeAreAnansi did some research and learned more about his own roots including Guyanese liberators such as Cuffy who all came from Ghana. Their symbol and hero was Anansi who held all the stories and controlled the weather. WeAreAnansi creates music to share his stories and instill a sense of pride in those who are proud of their culture and roots.
