Cubist: Prominence

For over 25 years I have been learning and performing traditional African songs of the Ewe people of southern Ghana. Songs from the ancient polyrhythmic dance "Atsiagbekor" convey warrior themes, while those from the social party dance "Gahu" are lighter and funkier. Nowadays the intricate warrior compositions are also performed in social settings, with battle themes taking on more everyday meanings: protect your family, be good to your community, help neighbors in times of need.
