Join us for the Arts and Culture STUDY TOUR to Ghana, West Africa.
Three weeks of intensive workshops, festivals, performances in drum, dance and song with some of West Africa's finest traditional musicians and dancers.
The students will be taught a range of dances and rhythms from the many ethnic groups that live in Ghana as well as dances and rhythms from some of the neighbouring countries in West Africa. Lessons can also be taken in other instruments like balafon (traditional wooden xylophone), moro and gonje (traditional stringed instruments), ashiwa (thumb piano), and atenteban (traditional bamboo flute). We can also offer a program of study in some of the more contemporary styles of Ghanaian music, like "highlife", using electric guitar, bass, drumkit etc .
In the evenings, enjoy performances held in various locations around Nungua, involving the participation of the local community. Traditional groups will play music and dance from the GA, ASHANTI , EWE, FANTI and other ethnic groups that live in Ghana. The evening entertainment is designed to present the incredible variety of music and dance as well as allowing the students to see and hear the rhythms and music they learn in their lessons. As well there will be opportunities to perform for local audiences (students say this is the most profound and exciting part of the tour)
Students will stay at the purpose built host family house. Rooms are single rooms with your own toilet and shower. Double rooms available for couples. All bed linen will be supplied but students will need to bring towels.The rooms will be serviced and arrangements can be made for laundry etc. Three delicious Ghanaian meals will be provided daily, prepared by the village women. Vegetarians and most special diets can be catered for.
