Music in Ghana
During Mrs Barnes and Miss Ambler's visit to Ghana, they were lucky enough to experience a wide range of African music! Music in Ghana is used for a variety of different reasons, for example, when celebrating, when worshipping or when getting ready for a football match! They also learnt that in Ghanaian history special drums were used that sounded like roaring animals so enemies were scared away!
