Nunya Academy Summer Institute

What is the Nunya Academy Summer Institute (NASI 2019)? Inspired by an extraordinary gathering and successes of the Orff-Afrique Master Classes (2014, 2016, 2018), the 1st Nunya Academy Summer Institute 2017, and the 10th International Body Music Festival 2018, this UNIQUE summer course offers the opportunity for an immersive, hands-on experience in West African culture, dance, drum, xylophone and vocal/choral music in Ghana, the place where these musical traditions live and breathe. Dr. Kofi Gbolonyo, the course director, will lead a group of seasoned Ghanaian professors and esteemed local teachers to teach the course. With all participants, we will embark on practical and theoretical exploration of West African drumming, dancing, xylophone, songs and their histories, theories of rhythm, time and techniques right in my home town of Dzodze, Volta Region, Ghana. In addition to the daily workshops and lectures, there will be evening concerts and festivals, field trips and a chance to work directly with, teach and learn from Ghanaian children at the Nunya Music Academy.
