Growing up in an art loving family, Yaw Dadzie found his passion for performing arts at a young age. He is a working Melbourne based musician and actor. His first serious performance experience was at the age of 9 where he took part in a few theatre shows in Melbourne’s inner west. It wasn’t until the age of 14 when he identified as an actor, ever since he has remained an avid theatre maker. Music is a great love for Yaw, nurturing his musical expression from an early age with African drumming and later as a teenager with the genre of hip-hop. Yaw is a strong vocalist and has developed his own style with Afro-beat, dancehall and hip- hop influences. His passion and skill in performance has earned him many a show in Australia and has led him to share his skills in community based programs in Melbourne running workshops in theatre and hip-hop. He is a proud facilitating member of the Sisters and Brothers team.
