Anansegromma of Ghana

Anansegromma of Ghana

Artist Overview

Native Ghanaians Kofi Dennis and Kwame Ansah-Brew offer an exhilarating and memorable introduction to West African culture. Audiences become members of a typical Ghanaian village, gathering with "royal elders" and court musicians to experience traditional music, storytelling, and dance, enhanced by the vibrant colors of their native attire. Through "call and response" songs, games, and drum rhythms on authentic instruments, Anansegromma offers an engaging, first-hand exploration of West African cultural traditions. Varied programs address themes of cooperation, courage, hope, caring, and sharing.
