LISTEN UP: 'Dumsor' Choral Song Goes Viral

A “dumsor” song went viral last week Friday on WhatsApp and other social media platforms in Ghana.

Witsfield is a patriotic musician from Cape Coast; a visionary composer and director of Witsharmonic Choir. He also happens to be a singer, violinist and keyboardist. It’s no wonder that, when his song was first heard, many people noted how well written (and performed) it was!

According to the composer, the song was recorded on the 7th of March this year, during the Cape Coast edition of his choir’s annual “Republic Concert”. The spirit of Witsharmonic’s concert is to promote peace, foster unity and address current issues of national concern, using choral music as the medium.
