Fidelis Amo-Antwi, aka Pap C, aka Bursty Burst and currently resurrected as Amo Jr., is a songwriter, guitar player, performer, living in Hamburg, Germany. Growing up in the ”Garden City” of Kumasi in the Ashanti region of Ghana during J.J.Rawlings “tightened grip” and turbulent reign, his father fled to Germany and was granted political asylum there in 1988. The rest of the family reunited with their father in Northeim 5 years later on a sun to snow, late November day, in ’88. Amo’s first introduction to and interest in music was ignited by “Highlife“ in Ghana and in Germany he was confronted with and embraced Indie, Pop, Folk, Blues & Soul, among other styles. During the formative years in Northeim he began “secretly” to write songs after learning 3 chords on the guitar, which he now possessed! Both his sisters played a large part in encouraging him to present his music in front of an audience.
Around 2004/2005 and over the next few years, Amo Jr. found himself being drawn more and more into the music business and he gigged under the moniker of Bursty Burst as a solo artist and later with a band, earning a good response from audiences! During the next 2 years he worked with Y’akoto and Sammy Deluxe as project collaborator. He returned to making music after a 5 year withdrawal from his musical endeavors to pursue an academic path.
