Ghanaian-Malagasy Poet Crystal Tettey Launches Album

Ghanaian and Malagasy Poet, Spoken Word artist and singer, Crystal Tettey, will be launching her first album titled “Faith, MadaGhana” on 6 July 2013, at Café de la Gare in Antananarivo, Madagascar.

Speaking exclusively to Creative Writing Ghana, the Spoken Word dynamo revealed that the recording, which is a 15-track album, comprises Spoken Word and soul/folk music performed in English, French and Malagasy. Half the album was recorded in a live acoustic environment. One half of the album was recorded in Ghana, and the other in Madagascar.

Clearly, the influences on the poems and songs will be varied.

Crystal relocated to Madagascar some time in the last quarter of 2012 in an apparent attempt to seek new artistic paths and regenerate her career. She has plans of returning to Ghana later this year. To like her Facebook page, click here.
