Before the first European set foot on the Gold Coast, the indigenous people had their own forms of sports and entertainment.
Music was a predominant cultural denominator which sometimes defined the boundaries of an ethnic group. The traditional musical types are as old as the ethnic groups.
Some of them, like traditional festivals, are embedded in the migration stories of the ethnic groups which perform them. They are often without known founders.
But Borborbor music has a different story. It is a modern day creation, a kind of influential music born in the period leading to Ghana’s independence according to researchers.
