Night of northern music and dance at Alliance Française

This year’s Celebrating Accra Arts Festival (CAAF 2014) will on Wednesday, March 26 present a night of music, dance and fashion from the northern part of this country at the Alliance Française in Accra.

The programme, which forms part of the March 2014 edition of La Paillote Takpekpe, will feature music from the Tamale Youth Home Cultural Group and Wuza Wuza Dance Ensemble.

Led by Abdul Rahaman Mohammed, the Tamale Youth Home Group will present traditional music and dance pieces from northern Ghana fused with their own creative pieces.

The group has in recent years performed across Denmark and organised workshops for music and dance teachers as well as performing artistes from Europe and the United States.

Wuza Wuza Dance Ensemble will perform pieces choreographed by Yahuza Alhassan.

DANIDA, Ghana Denmark Cultural Fund, Danish Embassy in Accra, Accra Metropolitan Assembly, Alliance Française, Goethe-Institut and the British Council are supporting CAAF 2014, which is being organised by the Institute for Music and Development.
