Halik

Bizung School of Music & Dance, Ghana

Halik is from Tamale, and has been attending the Bizung School of Music and Dance since 2010. He is very talented and studies Gongwan and Gonje. Halik had the opportunity to travel with other Bizung students to the Volta Region and Accra for music competitions last year.

A few months ago, he was sent by his mother to study in a school located in another town since there was no music school in the area. Halik realized how important music is to him during that time and he missed his friends. He then decided to write a song about the Bizung School of Music in order to express his feelings and his love of music. He has happily returned to music classes at Bizung.

Get to know Halik better though this video interview. Listen to his story and see how music is helping him to live a happy life.  

"Through the Bizung school I have become somebody you would never think I am. I came to learn about everything in my world. When I play music I become the happiest person in that moment."
