- Ashley and the Snow Leopard record a song
Today Ashley MacIsaac, Vince Ditrich, Geoff Kelly, Tobin Frank, Matthew Harderalong all of Spirit of The West, with Kwame known as the Snow Leopard entered the Armoury studio's in Vancouver to record a theme song to help fund Kwame's Olympic dream. Kwame was raised in Ghana and now trains in the UK, he remarkably qualified for the Men's Slalom but has no funding from his country so he has funded his Olympic bid through fund raisers and donations. The song will be available for download and proceeds will go directly to his Ski Team. More details tomorrow as we find out the name of the song and other guest musicians, pictures of the session will be posted as well.
Kwame Nkrumah-Acheampong - The Snow Leopard
Kwame, The Snow Leopard has qualified for the Vancouver Winter Olympics 2010 and will be representing Ghana. Being from African heritage and from a country without snow makes his participation particularly special, he is the first skier from Ghana and one of only a handful from the African continent. What makes Kwame’s dream and journey to the Olympics even more incredible is that be only starting skiing just over 5 years ago.
