First research in Cape Coast, Ghana

At the end of November, the two Bonn City Sound Artists 2024 Miki Yui and Stefan Schneider traveled to Ghana for an initial research. Several meetings in Accra were followed by a week-long stay in Cape Coast, Bonn’s project partner city. There, both artists presented themselves at the University of Cape Coast (Department of Music and Dance), as well as to the public at the Center of National Culture (CNC). They also went on several excursions to different communities in the area (e.g. to a fishermen’s community), visited musicians, religious rituals and concerts. This first trip served as preparation for the planned three-week research residency in February 2024.
