About this event

Born in Nsawam (a small Ghanaian village), into a famous family of drummers. At the age of 6yrs, Abass Doodo was inspired by my grandmother “Abiba Okailey Ablah” the mother of the Ghanaian famous master drummer, Mustapha Tettey Addy” as she taught him drumming by singing traditional rhythms. The family of Royal master Ghanaian Drummers was not only steeped in the traditions of Ghanaian music and dance, but also in the folklore of traditional medicines. Mentored by, and under the instruction of his uncle, Master drummer, anthropologist and researcher in the field of traditional music and dance.

These workshops invite people to participate in, and contribute to complex and dynamic Ghanaian music and dance. Drumming contributes to physical healing and encourages a release of internal trauma through movement and rhythms.
