The Akwaaba Ensemble brings African drumming and dance to vivid life with the rhythms and styles of different tribal groups from West Africa. The ensemble is led by master percussionist and teacher Theophilus Nii Martey who began studying traditional African music during his childhood in Ghana. The Akwaaba Ensemble’s energetic and engaging performances are a reflection of their name, which means “Welcome” in the Akan language of Ghana. Feel free to get up and move!
