On the bright side, Nima’s own hip life music group V.I.P. has agreed to perform. The event itself is going to rock, now we just have to get the funds.
Workshops started Tuesday. The kids were so into it that Larry stayed at the Anani International School for three hours. When he finally came to meet us, his hands were covered in clay or some kind of white dust. He had to ko na koju allay (“go and bath,” I think – a taxi driver taught me that) before we could film his clip for the video.
P.S. Yesterday my friend Zip showed me this pidgin musical film “Coz Ov Moni,” of the artists Wanlov and M3NSA (whom prof Jesse Shipley’s filmed videos for) goofing around rapping about a typical day/adventure in Accra. A perfect ode to Ghana. Much of it’s filmed in Nima.
