The band’s originality stems from their music, which is a fusion of hard rock/metal and
African mystic music.
In spite of rock music not being highly promoted in Togo, since 2010, under the determined leadership of Rock Ahavi, ARKA’N has paved its way on the Togolese music scene as the sole hard rock metal band which creates, records and performs its own songs deriving their particular sound from the intense African character of their compositions.
As such, ARKA’N seeks to promote values they hold dear: pride in African wisdom, tradition, faith, fighting spirit, so as to better expose social issues and call for solutions inspired by spiritual ideals.
Attending an ARKA’N concert gives proof that the African metal scene keeps growing and is worth discovering.
