The Sixth Band of IMAF



For the sixth band of IMAF, the advisory committee presents Sweet Poison Victim. Led by Kwesi Brown, Sweet Poison Victim was named for the unfortunate recipient of a potent and sometimes lethal Ghanaian alcohol called Sweet Poison. Brown carries a jug of the stuff wherever he plays, and, Sweet Poison ambassador he is, likes to share. The band is a collective of drummers, percussionists, guitar- and horn-players knocking out infectious Western, African, Caribbean and everywhere in-between music. You could call it world music, but that wouldn’t do it justice. More like Mardi Gras music if it was played around the world (and in this case, at IMAF). Take a sip of Sweet Poison…if you dare.
