Event Description:

Wassa Pan Afrika Dance Ensemble was founded in 1998 by Nana Kwasi Anim, and is known as the most premiere traditional African Dance and Drum performance group throughout Ghana, West Africa. Several members trained at the Pan Africa Orchestra, the Center for National Culture, Ghana Cultural Ballet, and the Dance Factory. They are considered the most elite group of musicians and dancers, and students and audiences have traveled from all over the world to train with them. Newspaper Ghanian Chronicle wrote "Wassa Pan-Afrika captivates audiences with electrifying dance and innovative rhythms." They have traveled throughout Europe, Australia, and West Africa, spreading their message of peace, unity, and cheer. They are a dynamic group of 20 professional African drummers and dancers that brings excitement and energy to the stories and traditions of Africa. Wassa Pan Afrika was chosen to be the opening and closing act at the ceremonies of the CAF, Cup of Nations Football Tournament, and they dazzled audiences in the country's National Festival of Arts (NAFAC).
