Kakatsitsi, Master Drummers from Ghana
The Kakatsitsi Master Drummers are a group of traditional drummers, dancers and singers from the Ga tribe of Southern Ghana. Their music takes from their own Ga traditon and other West African cultures, sometimes rearranging them in a more modern and accessable way. Kakatsitsi have been delivering schools performances and workshops across the the United Kingdom for many years and have performed at The Big Bang Festival in Temple Bar. The drummers offer a range of educational activities:
- Narrated and participatory educational performances
- Workshops in : Drumming, Dancing, Singing / Light Percussion
- A ‘bringing it all together’ performance by the children at the end
Brian Fleming BA, Hdip, MA is a percussionist, producer and theatre maker. He has recorded on over 30 albums and is equally valued as artist, teacher and producer. Brian will work alongside the Indigenous People in schools.
