A ten-day conference dubbed: “global network for higher music education”, commenced at the University of Cape Coast (UCC), to analyze the positive consequences of globalization through music. About 50 delegates made up of students and teachers from 13 countries were attending the event to brainstorm on musical culture and education, performances in music and adaptation of music from all over the world. The countries, which had formed a music academy to exchange ideas include Ghana, Mali, Tanzania, South Africa, Mozambique, Norway, Germany, Sweden, and Denmark and would also learn from each others culture to enhance music production. The conference is being collaborated by Global Music Network (GLOMUS), Centre for International Education of the UCC, and African Footprint International, a music and dance organization based in Cape Coast. Speaking at the opening ceremony, Dr. Keld Hosbond, head of International Relation of GLOMUS, said the music academy networked with other music organizations in the world to exchange ideas and promote their cultures through music. He added that the most significance aspect of the conference was to foster collaboration amongst the delegates. Professor Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang, Vice Chancellor of UCC, in a speech read on her behalf, said the programme has been of immense benefit to the UCC since it was started in 2008. She urged delegates to avail themselves of the opportunity being offered them to learn from each others culture to help promote the teaching and learning of music in higher institutions of learning. GLOMUS presented an electronic bass guitar and other undisclosed musical instruments to the UCC. - movie africa online

Für mich eines der schönsten, weil intensivsten und freundlichsten Bilder: Die Performance der Tanz- und Musikgruppe African Footprint International aus Ghana! Sie hatten mehrere Auftritt beim vergangenen STAMP Festival 2010 in Hamburg, das Bild zeigt sie bei einem Auftritt auf “STAMP VII”, auf dem Bruno-Tesch-Platz in Altona-Altstadt oder, wie ihn er von den Organisatoren genannt wurde: Dem Asphaltwald. Wundervoll! Unglaublich diese Leistung, dieses Gefühl und diese Kunst! - Sommer in Hamburg - Das Online Hamburg Magazin
