SXSW 2016 is right around the corner.
The 2016 South by South West Festival (SXSW) Music Festival lineup is really beginning to take shape as two Ghanaian musicians and over 550+ Showcasing Artists have been announced.
The two are multiple award winning Ghanaian dancehall artist Stonebwoy Burniton and Dex Kwasi who are expected to partake in the SXSW Music Festival scheduled from March 11 – 20 2016. The festival is to be held in Austin, Texas.
Dex was born in Dallas, TX to parents of Ghanaian descent. At age 6 his parents decided to move home to Ghana, where they took their young son and opened him up to a whole new world in Africa. Some years later he moved back to the US, to the south side of Chicago, and then later to Oklahoma City, four radically difference places – all of which helped Dex gain his open perspective, and hone his lyrical abilities.
Stonebwoy was born in Ghana and has over the years risen through the ranks to be ranked one of the best on the African continent. From being crowned the artist of the year at the Ghana Music Awards to winning the BET for Best International Act. He has performed with several renowned artists including Moragn Heritage
Other artists are expected to be announced soon.
