Bizung School of Music & Dance – Ghana

In February 2010, the Playing For Change Foundation opened its second music school in Tamale, Ghana, hometown of PFC band member Mohammed Alidu. Alidu is the descendant of a lineage of drummer chiefs from the Northern Region of Ghana called the Bizung. The school offers classes in traditional music and dance in an environment adapted to the study of different instruments: percussion, xylophone, gonje, and chant. This school is the first free music school in the Northern Region of Ghana.
