The Music Preservation Workshop is an educational workshop that teaches young audio engineers and beat makers how to record local traditions of music and remix it into their own original productions. Not only does this give youth the opportunity to learn digital technology but also gives them a chance to uphold traditions that are neglected in the face of Eurocentric curriculum. Some of these musical traditions include: Kpanlogo, Agbadza, and Highlife.
The music workshop takes place at the University of Ghana, Legon. About 10-15 students from the local community in Accra attend the workshop. Expert musicians, audio engineers, and historians based at the University of Ghana join students to help them record traditional rhythms and remix them. At the end of the workshop our team donates a mobile studio to the University of Ghana so that they can continue to record, catalog, and conserve culture for years to come.
