Kakatsitsi Master Drummers
Nothing Ever Happens Here
Summerhall Festival - The Dissection Room
Kakatsitsi are a group of traditional drummers, dancers and singers from Ghana. Their music rearranges traditional rhythms and chants from a variety of Ghanaian tribes in a neo-traditional and accessible way. They have toured the UK 15 times, including high profile performances at WOMAD, Glastonbury and many other festivals and venues. The recent addition of a strong dance element has established Kakatsitsi as one of the leading traditional drumming groups in Africa. Their performances are both richly entertaining and educational, giving audiences an insight into one of Africa's richest drumming and dance cultures.
