Kofi Dennis presents 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 native attire. Through call and response songs, games, dance, and drum rhythms, Kofi offers an engaging, first-hand exploration of West African culture.
This energetic program includes traditional stories, demonstrations of authentic musical instruments and an explanation of kente cloth symbolism. With his extensive background as a teacher and performer, Kofi has developed programs that engage, educate, and entertain audiences of all ages.
