[Winneba Youth Choir of Ghana; John Arthur-Francis Yemoah, Musical Director]

Dr. Fred Onovwerosuoke of African Musical Arts, Inc. of St. Louis sends us word of the WINNEBA YOUTH CHOIR OF GHANA on its
Songs of Africa Tour in the U.S. from October 7 to November 4, 2009:

“Perhaps few youth choirs from Africa or elsewhere can demonstrate the diverse artistry for which the Winneba Youth Choir of Ghana is now famed. With voices evenly balanced between boys and girls, the approach with ease a wide-ranging repertoire – from complex choral harmonies to folk, American Spirituals and Gospel, yet remain true to their unique niche of African song and dance traditions. Though from Ghana, the choir proudly bears a banner for all of Africa, and thus showcases selections from around the continent.” “As Musical Director, John Arthur-Francis Yemoah is well known and respected in choral circles in Ghana and the United States.”
