Life in Accra

A February 2006 trip to Accra by Swissie

Quote: I came to Ghana in 2006 as a volunteer and intended to stay in Accra for 3 months while working for a local charity. The experience was so good that i just couldn't leave. I'm still here, enjoying this beautiful country that is so rich in culture.
You can get some fun, hands-on experience of African culture by taking drumming lessons. Kingy Mensah Percussions offers Djembe and Kpanlogo lessons, taught by a professional drummer. You can just drop in for a spontaneous lesson or schedule a well organized workshop for a group in advance. Negotiate the price before playing. Don't leave Africa without having played the drums! It's not as easy as it seems, but great fun!
