Raise Your Helping Hand
The Ghana Music Project is a platform that helps artists, educators, and institutions connect to traditions of African knowledge through hip-hop, sampling, and digital learning technologies.
We believe that indigenous arts should be at the center of education . Our mission is to bridge the gap between creatives in the Diaspora and traditional Ghanaian knowledge through music, dance, and education . We do that by building cultural assets and creating educational programs that connect artists and learners to traditions of African art.

What People Say
