    Religious singing and dancing

    by georeiser Written Dec 29, 2010

    Fondest memory: Load music is heard from a backstreet in Elmina where locals gather to sing and dance. This is some kind of religious thing where people are almost in a trance. And it happens every week. It's all organized by some christian organization.
