Biography

Growing up in the UK and then later living in Portugal, Anansi has a life long dream to bring his version of the Latin America sound to the masses. Starting with Sergio Mendes, Jorge Ben and Eddy Grant as a child, he was quickly influenced by the UK and American Underground sounds, growing to love and participate in Hip Hop, Grime and House. Anansi combines his upbringing in the West with his ancestry from the south, creating a fusion of South American and UK sounds. Anansi was nick-named by his mother who would read him stories of Anansi the spider, a trickster and mythological character from Ghana, whose stories travelled to South American shores via slavery, which became a sign of revolution, rebellion and strength, something this Anansi will become known for.
