DAVID KWAKU AZALU was born on 29th October 1980 at Accra New Town, a suburb of Greater Accra region in Ghana.
David attended Kotobabi Presby Primary school (K.P.P.S.) and Kotobabi ‘2’ J.H.S for his primary and Junior High education and went on to the West Africa Secondary school (WASS now called WASHS)
But before David Azalu went to WASS, he got enrolled into a Community program at the Community Youth Cultural Centre (CYCC) in 1997 where he started learning how to read music and got introduced to Tuba by the then Police Sargent Godfred Atteh Tawiah having been introduced to the bass guitar earlier that same year by Prince Wellington. Same year, David got enrolled into a three months music theory and practical program facilitated by the NATIONAL SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA under the directorship of Mrs. Theresa Tetteh who impressed upon David to learn the violin instead of the tuba because of his rather smallish stature, a suggestion he declined and kept on with the tuba, the instrument he grew to love.
As a multi-talent passionate and self‐motivated creative Arts professional with more than 12 years experience in MUSIC, David is currently working with the ACCRA SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA as music composer/arranger.
Aiming to become a professor in ethnomusicology, David has written over 40 personal contemporal songs, over 10 film theme music and 5 mainstream classical orchestral compositions yet to be released.
His most recent achievement is performing as a tubist in the abridged version of Giuseppe Verdi’s opera RIGOLETTO in the ACCRA SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA’s 2018 ‘ACCRA GOES TO THE OPERA’ program.
With no formal university education in music whatsoever, David is hoping to get worldwide position(s) that gives him the opportunity and the environment where his talent, abilities and potentials would be tested, developed and utilized for the enhancement, growth and success of both corporate and personal goals.
David is most passionate about poverty eradication in Africa and other parts of the world at large so he is involved in various humanitarian and human resource development agendas through motivational speaking, teaching of various arts subjects on free basis (music, acting, Film making, Media etc.) and inspiring people (esp. Children & young adults) towards self-discovery for success. He does this through his own NGOs; TRACY FOUNDATION and TRAMMEDIA COLLEGE OF ARTS-TRACOA where he gives free arts training and teachings to people especially children and young adults including learning materials sometimes. He is also currently a senior member of RESCUE ME FOUNDATION INTERNATIONAL (RMFI-GHANA), an NGO focusing on community Health, Education and Mentorship agendas.
David is married to Matilda Azalu and they have Benjamin Atambilla as their adopted son.
David is currently working on a number of arts projects including releasing his classical and contemporal singles starting from June 2019 and first contemporal and classical albums by March and July 2020 respectively.
He also plans on filming and airing his musical 3-in-1 TV series; THE CLASSICAL SCORE, a musical educational program by September 2019, staging his first ever opera; WHAT IS WRONG WITH AFRICA by February 2020.
Apart from these, David is also writing a number of personal books, movies and TV series scripts and songs/compositions.
David Azalu is a Christian who believes that everyone in this world has talent and it is only by finding, harnessing it to form the basis of our individual careers that we become successful.
