He became known in America for introducing the obonu drum to Jazz, a drum then referred to as “Talking Drum”. It had been unknown to Jazz before. Ghanaba was among the first to search for the creative possibilities of blending/and (re)connecting (African-American) Jazz with African or better Ghanaian modern popular as well as traditional music long before this became a creative powerhouse for many other musicians from Africa as well as the Americas.
