Gahu Dramatic Arts (GDA) is a non-profit organization, founded in 2005 and incorporated in the United Kingdom. GDA has a branch in Ghana. The organization is dedicated to research about dance and supports many types of endeavors and activities within the dance field. Policies are established by a Board of Directors, confirmed by the participation of its membership, the public, and various funding agencies. Support is provided through the Hackney Council, Hackney voluntary and community centre grant and Chess Development Fund (CDF). GDA welcomes those who are interested in volunteering their time and skills.
Gahu means rich drum, a word from Ewe in the southern part of Ghana. We deliver a vibrant, energetic and emotional flowering performance to our audience and spectators, which includes all ages and cultural background. GDA’s aim is to promote, teach and preserve African and African-Carribean traditional cultures.
Gahu also helps us to understand and appreciate traditional African music, musk and drama, drumming, dance and story telling through performance and workshops, lectures and demonstration of African and Caribbean techniques and rhythms.
