Often referred to as the continent of contrast, Africa has distinct differences in language, music, culture and rhythms. Featuring Ashanti-Sebei, this is an introduction into the artistically rich African culture through dance, music, songs and clothing. Students participate in an exciting performance that blends Eastern and Western Cultures. Margo dances the welcome dance "Fanga", while rhythms are played by David and Tony. Explanation and verbal welcome are given while common words are spoken and taught to the audience and hand games are played. Students are then invited on stage to participate in a joyous rendition of an African counting song called Kye Kye Kule - a call and response Simon-says type song.
