Ghanian chief in traditional clothing, speaking at microphone with umbrella

On February 29, CHAT was honored to screen the documentary film "Gone to the Village," in conjunction with the Music Department at Tufts. This event was attended by chiefs and queens of the Asante Tribe, as well as various departmental guests. The event was preceded by a traditional drum performance and there was a special procession of the Ghanian guests and their families.

Heather Curtis and Kwasi Ampene introduced the film and special guests provided their own introductions with context for the film.
