Medici Soundsystem: +233 Independence Day Edition
Since its inception in 2016, Medici has built a respectable reputation for curating engaging and stimulating experiences in the heart of Accra. The company’s philosophy has always been to push boundaries by creating thrilling and engaging experiences across the capital with some of their previous partnerships, including high profile brands such as Martell, D’Ussé, and Bloom Bar. The relentless desire to try new things and introduce alternative events people didn’t know they needed sets them apart.
To commemorate Ghana’s sixty-fifth independence day celebrations, Medici have curated an exclusive experience celebrating Ghana’s rich cultural history and sound. Medici’s vision saw the birth of a new subsidiary, Medici Sounds, with a singular aim. The team remains committed to collecting alternative euphoric sounds from all corners of the globe and bringing together what will soon be known as a community of like-minded music enthusiasts and creatives through their events and merchandise. The Medici Sounds team constantly looks for unique experiences that do not get enough notice.
Medici’s next edition of their flagship bottomless brunch experience event dubbed Urban Sundays is happening at Bloom Bar on 6th March hosted by Big Woo w/ iPhxne DJ, Master Bruce, DJ Juvenile and Maleek DJ.

Curated by Medici Sounds, this year’s event presents a playlist of some of the best sounds from the 233 with a patriotic blend of Afro Trap, Alté, Indie/Folk, Afrobeats, Rap, Highlife, Hiplife, and Drill in celebration of the motherland’s 65th year of independence. It features seasoned highlife classics including Pat Thomas and Kwashibu Area Band’s “Gyae Su”, as well as legends of this era such as our favourite #CatMama Ria Boss, purring over her heartwarming track “Holding Hands in Public” from her 2018 project “Underwater”, and Moliy + Kkeda’s carefree 2021 single “Loud” produced by MikeMillzOnEm.
This collection of over 100 tracks of pure Ghanaian vibrations is bound to take you on a journey of nostalgia, inspiration and motivation. The smooth vocals of Black Sherif, one of Ghana’s newest breakout stars with “Second Sermon”, is also listed alongside other new age rappers, including Ivory Osidan, Yaw Tog and BRYAN THE MENSAH.
