Traditional dance styles in Ghana: 1. Kete: a court dance performed for the entertainment of the Ashantehene chief of Ashanti. Originally performed for only the royals and now at all social gatherings in modern Ghana. 2. Bamaya: a social dance of the Dagomba tribe in the northern part of Ghana. Originating as a result of drought. Performed by men only. It is performed in a circle with the drummers in the middle, but the group has created its own arrangement. 3. Jera: a ceremonial dance performed for heroes or on very important occasions. Jera comes from the northern part of Ghana. It is also performed by men who are spiritually strong and can display their power. 4. Sikyi: a recreational dance performed by the Akans in Ghana. It is flirtatious in character and its movement includes bobbling. In this dramatized version, the performers entertain you with innocent youthful love plays between lads and lasses.
