The Ashanti tribe of the Akan are the largest tribe in Ghana and one of the few matrilineal societies in West Africa. Once renown for the splendour and wealth of their rulers, they are most famous today for their craft work, particularly their hand-carved stools and fertility dolls and their colourful kente Unlike virtually all other West Africans, Ghanaians do not use masks, although this is not to say they don't believe in supernatural powers and the fetishes used to invoke them. Rather, in Ghana this is most often accomplished using wooden or clay statuettes, often placed on altars in fetish houses. Fetish dolls in particular are treated like magical items, and women who want to ensure themselves beautiful, healthy children can be seen carrying the dolls around on their backs, with only the dolls' flat, fat heads protruding from their slings. In all sculpture, gender is very important, and body parts - especially the head, buttocks, breast and navel - are exaggerated in size. Soups, which are more like sauces, are the mainstay of Ghanaian cuisine. They're usually fairly thick broths and are eaten with a starch. Popular stews include groundnut, garden egg, fish, bean leaf and

    Who Are You? Prospective Students Accepted Students Advisors/Faculty Parents ... Requires free Adobe Acrobat Reader The Ashanti people of Ghana established one of the wealthiest, most advanced kingdoms in West Africa. When the first Europeans arrived in the area 500 years ago, they marveled at the elaborate Ashanti gold artwork and jewelry, naming the area the Gold Coast. Despite long periods of European influence and colonization, Ghana has maintained a strong sense of identity, as evidenced by the variety of traditional and modern art, dance, and music that flourishes throughout the country.

    Country Info Ghana Introduction Ghana General Data Ghana Maps Ghana Culture ... Ghana Time and Date Ghana Culture Back to Top Ghana has a rich indigenous culture. Culturally, the peoples of Ghana have many affinities with their French-speaking neighbours, but each tribal group has distinctive cultural attributes. In all parts of the country the cultural heritage is closely linked with religion and the institution of chieftaincy. Various festivals and rites are centred on chieftaincy and the family and are occasioned by such events as harvest, marriage, birth, puberty, and death. Ghanaian society is without sharp class distinctions. Insofar as traditional authority is based on a system of hereditary chieftaincy, it is possible to speak of aristocratic classes within the tribal groups, but the institution of chieftaincy is essentially democratic in operation and the authority of chiefs is broadly based. Land is usually owned by families, militating against the emergence of a small, powerful landed class wielding economic control over a landless class. These inherent egalitarian tendencies of the society have been heightened by economic and social mobility, depending on education and individual enterprise.

    Set in Nungua, a village 15 kms from Accra, the 2002 Kusun Study tour offers four weeks of intensive study to give students a true immersion in the rich and varied culture of Ghana.
    Studying 4 hours daily, 20-25 students will learn from 12 drumming and dance teachers. As recognised leaders in their fields, many of these teachers are past and present members of The Pan African Orchestra and the National Ballet and teachers from the National Centre for Culture. With such a low student/teacher ratio, you will enjoy the constant attention of these tutors and find it easy to learn and retain the rhythms and songs. Classes will be divided into smaller groups according to students' levels of skill.
    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 .
    The Kusun cultural immersion does not end in class. Students are taught the historical and cultural significance of the music and are given a rare opportunity to meet some of the musicians and dancers who have played significant roles in shaping traditional music and who have either composed new rhythms and dances or have heavily influenced the music being played today. Watch them perform, learn how the rhythms evolved, gain an invaluable understanding of the historical context of the rhythms you learn.
