Welcome

TWERAMMPON TRADITIONALS is an artistic group that embraces all forms of arts including painting, but mostly music in various forms.

The group was formed when the artistic director, Odomankoma-kyerema Kwamena Pra, saw the downward trend of arts in Ghana (and Africa as a whole) due to Western influence. Kwamena Pra was the name given to him at birth in 1959 at Cape Coast, but his drumming and dancing career which started from age three to fifteen, gave him the first title, Okyerema Kwamena Pra. His skills were deepened and at age forty, elders who know and understand spiritual sound symbols added the last title for him to become Odomankoma-Kyerema Kwamena Pra, because he is able to contact the spirits on drums.

Building the group also made it possible to assist needy youth from Cape Coast who have the interest of music at heart. The group gives the youth formal and informal education by sending them to school or to an apprenticeship besides equipping them with artistic skills. Thus they can help to preserve and promote traditional arts and they can eventually sustain themselves in the music industry.
