A musical concert to showcase Israeli culture to the Ghanaian public has been held in Tamale.
Performing was Mr Gilad Dobrecky, an Israeli percussionist, who treated the audience comprising players in the arts industry and students, to various types of musical rhythms.
The musical concert, which took place on Wednesday, was jointly organized by the Israeli Embassy in Accra and the Tamale Metropolitan Assembly (TAMA).
It was dubbed, “Ghana Tour” and had taken Mr Dobrecky to five cities; Kumasi, Tamale, Ntronang, and Sakuba with Accra, being the last to be held later in the week.
The concert, apart from showcasing the Israeli culture, also aimed to share and learn from the Ghanaian culture.
To this end, the Yemgari Nayili Cultural Troupe of the Centre for National Culture and the Youth Home Cultural Group, an affiliate of the National Youth Authority, also performed Ghanaian traditional dances.
Speaking to the Ghana News Agency, Mr Eyal Lampert, Deputy Israeli Ambassador to Ghana, said the initiative formed part of the Embassy’s outreach to exchange as well as share ideas and experiences on cultural bondage with Ghanaians.
Mr Lampert was happy at the level of enthusiasm shown by the audience towards performance by Mr Dobrecky saying it reflected the cultural connection between Ghana and Israel.
Mr Blaise Dasanah, Assistant Director in-charge of Administration at TAMA, said the event further gave an impetus to the long standing relationship that existed between both countries.
Mr Dasanah stressed that, “We can only further consolidate this friendship through some of these cultural exchanges.”
