Cultural exchange

His West African culture is a gift Koffie Fugah wants to share.

The 39-year-old grew up in Ghana but came to New Zealand in 2013, and since then has been expressing his culture through dance, drumming and performance.

Music and dance were part of his daily life growing up and now, living in Dunedin, he hoped to introduce it into people’s lives across New Zealand.

Mr Fugah had organised a weekend of performance workshops in dancing, drumming and song to be held at Otago Girls’ High School on September 5 and 6, and said everyone was invited.

"Bring your friends, get a ticket, come on down ... it will be the most fun you can have."
