 Born Nathan Kuma on 16th November 1972 in Cape Coast, Ghana West Africa, Ras Boomba has literally grown up with the development of the Reggae scene in Ghana. A product of the prestigious Mfantsepim School in Cape Coast he followed the Pop Chains at the time, and at the College of Art at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Ras Boomba manifested bursting out with  a wild combination of songwriting skills and a meek melodious voice.

Inspired by the likes of earlier Artists and bands like Roots Anabo, Kente, Chi Kale, Consular Hayes, Rudi Kofi Frankie and Felix Bell, Ras Boomba started an early career playing and teaching music while still a student himself at Art College. Around this time, he played and participated in many sessions and a couple stage shows with bands like Shirring Shiring Shi, supplying lead guitar and occasionally rhythm guitar chops on their songs and cementing his reputation as a multi-instrumentalist with a serious reggae groove. He also would be seen occasionally jumping on the bass.

 

Although a solo artist, Ras Boomba has played in many bands and backed many artists in recording studios and on stage. He is essentially a session artist for a lot of the Gh Reggae/Dancehall artists. Simply put, Ras Boomba is the artist’s artist.
