One of Ghana’s prolific cultural groups, kweikuma Cultural Group, has outlined that one of its objectives is to develop the talents of the youth culturally so it will help create employment for them.
The group which has trained a lot of people including students over the years has been involved in the promotion and development of traditional Ghanaian music and dance.
John Yartey, leader of the group, revealed that they are negotiating with some selected institutions in the country where its members would train and help to develop talents in the field of traditional drumming and dancing.
The group, sharing its social responsibility added that the training programmes were conceived to encourage the young ones to develop an interest in traditional music and dance as a means of preserving our cultural heritage. Participants will be made to perform and demonstrate their acquired skills in various African artistic mediums such as music, dance, theatre and visual arts, and this will be achieved through studio classes, and interaction with artists, and renowned cultural performers. Kweikuma Cultural group mentioned that there would be Field trips and study tours to provide another unique cultural immersion opportunity.
Formed to promote Ghanaian and African cultural values, both at home and abroad, since its establishment over the years, Kweikuma Cultural group has had tremendous success and has emerged as a bedrock of Ghanaian cultural preachers.
