Fuasi Abdul-Khaliq

Fuasi Abdul-Khaliq is a musician who did his post-graduate studies with the late great African-American pianist Horace Tapscott and his non-profit institution named UGMAA (Union of God's Musicians and Artist Ascension) in Los Angeles, California. This led to a lifetime relationship with Tapscott's Pan-African People's Arkestra (PAPA), during which time he served as assistant conductor, arranger, composer, and copyist to accompany his duties on saxophone, clarinet and flute. For the last 27 years, Fuasi has toured worldwide and led his own ensembles such as Fuasi & Ensemble, The Ebony Big Band Experience, The Horace Tapscott Memorial Ensemble and the Afro Cubano Latin Jazz Connection. Recently he has been curating a Hommage Tribute Series for the Werkstatt der Kulturen in Berlin.
