05/13 | Ghana Seperewa Highlife at Global Dance Party at Old Town School of Folk Music


Osei John is the captivating flag bearer of Ghana’s seperewa tradition. The seperewa is the harp of the Ashanti and Akan people of Ghana. The instrument descended from the Sahelian north, prospered for centuries among various Akan groups, then almost disappeared as guitar playing spread from the coast.

The Global Dance Party is a Friday night series offering an exciting opportunity to experiment with dance styles from around the globe. Each evening will feature a dance class followed by two hours of music from live bands or DJs in the Myron R. Szold Music & Dance Hall.

8pm Old Town School of Folk Music, 4544 N. Lincoln Avenue, Chicago IL 60625 • 773.728.6000
