Ghana: Children at Play: Children's Songs and Games

Album producer Ivan Annan writes about the importance of children’s play in African culture in the liner notes to this release. He observes that not only is play a time of fun, it is also a time for learning, friendship, and love. Equally important, play involves adult participation. The liner notes and vocal tracks provide instructions for game activity. For example, in the song “Kwaa Ni Kwaa Ni,” participants learn to play a game similar to “Hide and Seek.” Liner notes include an introduction by Dr. William Kolma Amoaku, PhD (1940–2012) (identified in the liner notes as Dr. Amo Aku).
