Kakatsitsi are a group of traditional drummers, dancers and singers from the Ga tribe of Southern Ghana. Their music takes traditional rhythms and chants from their own Ga tradition and gives them a modern twist. Traditional drumming grooves played on a wide variety of West African drums are mixed with melodies from bamboo flutes, xylophone plus traditional chants sung in six part harmony. This is a welcome return to the Universal Hall for the group who were last here in 2012. For details of their workshops see below.
