International Travelers - World Music Festival Trip

Location: Okurase, Ghana
Description: Join us for a Nkabom World Music Festival. Explore music from around the world with fellow artists and all that appreciate music. This festival is a way to create connections between many cultures through music and performance art. The Nkabom World Music Festival is a way for musicians and performance artists from all over the world to expand their outlook and mission in an environment that has a timeless tradition of supporting and fostering arts and cultural traditions. Nkabom means “unity” in the Twi language of West Africa. The festival will bring together artists from many diverse backgrounds and musical genres, creating opportunities for never-before-heard conglomerations of rhythm, melody and production. The various artists will perform sets on the main stage throughout the three days, as well as host musical and cultural workshops and clinics. The festival will be held at the Nkabom Centre in the village of Okurase, Ghana, Upper West Akyem District of the Eastern Region of West Africa. Okurase Village is approximately a two hour drive from the capital, Accra, and a two hour drive to beautiful beaches.

If you are coming from an International location, this trip will provide your in-country transportation to/from the airport, accommodations, food and water during your stay at Nkabom House. Please contact us if you are interested. Artists will arrive 2 or 3 days before the festival, and are welcome to stay in Ghana for sightseeing and cultural enrichment opportunities around the country for the duration of their stay.
