"Dance Africa... Dance to the Rhythm"
ABRAHAM PADDY TETTEH
Founder and CEO
My name is Abraham Paddy Tetteh. I am the founder, CEO and leader of Dance Africa Foundation. Since 2009 I have worked very hard with my group to create a show that will inspire audiences through music and well choreographed dance to give the highest standard of performance available. I have been playing drums from the age of 12 and gave my first performance at the age of 14 at the Center for National Culture, Accra, Ghana. It was around this time that I also became interested in Dance, learning Ghanaian traditional dances including Agbekor, Bamaya and Jera to name a few.
At the age of 19, I began to learn the skill of making my own drums and can proudly say that all drums used in Dance Africa Foundation are made with my own hands.
