A Novel Idea: The Role of Storytelling, Music and Dance in Ghana

Saturday, April 15  |  2:00pm - 3:00pm

Discover the role storytelling, music and dance plays in Ghanaian culture with Dr. Habib Iddrisu of University of Oregon. In almost all parts of Ghana, storytelling music and dance is interwoven into the historical, cultural, and socio-political lives of the people. Based on oral tradition, knowledge is usually transferred from elders to the children, and one of the tools employed in this process is the concept of a ?total performance,? the combination of music, dance, singing, and storytelling with the intent to educate, teach and entertain.
