  • AN EVENING WITH PROF. EMERITUS J. H. KWABENA NKETIA

    The management, Faculty, Staff and the entire student body of the African University College of Communications (AUCC) had the glorious opportunity on Wednesday April 20, 2016 to experience live African music performances from one of Africa’s illustrious and celebrated son Emeritus Professor J. H. Kwabena Nketia. The 95 year old Prof. is a celebrated composer, a peerless ethnomusicologist, and a prolific writer. His songs were brilliantly performed by Andrews Kwaku Agyemfra-Tettey, a computer music technologist at the University of Ghana, Legon.

    In his opening remarks, Prof. Nketia said "a person without the knowledge of the past
    history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots". He therefore encouraged the youth never to under-estimate their cultural heritage and the happiness it brings when they know their true history. He encouraged them to feel proud about the African cultural heritage and proudly exhibit them wherever they find themselves.

    The event was organized by the Kwabena Nketia Centre for Africana Studies (KNCAS) at AUCC to introduce students and Faculty to Emeritus Professor Nketia’s Classical African Art Music compositions and also make students fully understand, appreciate, and unapologetically wear their Africaness. Dubbed “illuminating history, aesthetics & philosophy of his classical african art music”, patrons enjoyed songs like Mmoatia Sankuo (1960), the ever popular Ananse Akuamoa (1963), Libation (1975), Okwan Asi (1947), Obi Nya N'ade (1962), Cowlane Sextet (1959) and many more.

    Speaking at the event, the president of AUCC, Dr. G. Koryoe Anim-Wright charged students to develop keen interest in things about Africa.

    The Director, KNCAS, Prof. Kwabena Akurang-Parry in a short speech said the occasion has not only been a moment of excellence of listening pleasures, but indeed a time of learning about the ways that classical African music embodies our rich histories and cultures. He added that Nketia Centre for Africana Studies has other programs packaged to disseminate Africana epistemologies. He used the occasion to announce upcoming events from the centre which includes Annual Conference, Nketia Africana Historical Biography Project, and the biennial Nketia Lectures among others.

    The Kwabena Nketia Centre for Africana Studies (KNCAS) at the African University College of Communications (AUCC) is the custodian of the creative legacy and intellectual tradition of Emeritus Professor J.H. Kwabena Nketia. Thus the Nketia Centre for Africana Studies houses Professor Nketia’s Classical African Art Music compositions, manuscripts, publications, field notes, photos, books, journals, awards, etc.
