Immy Owusu

Immanuel Kwabena Dreessens-Owusu is multi-instrumental songwriter known primarily as the former drummer for indigenous artist Yirrmal and coastal rockers Children Of The Sun. Growing up immersed in the Geelong music scene, as a late teenager Immy became interested in his African/Ghanaian heritage and the African origins of ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll’ though the Trans-Atlantic slave trade.

In 2016 he went over to West Africa to study with his grandfather Koo Nimo, a highly renowned Ghanaian High-Life musician, who taught him to play the Afro styles of Dagomba and Palm Wine Hi-Life. He returned from Ghana with a quirky new brand of Afro-Rock.
