Dormaa celebrates Kwafie festival

A colourful display of customs and traditions marked the celebration of this year’s Kwafie Festival, which also conincided with the 15th anniversary of the enstoolment of the Paramount Chief of the Dormaa Traditional Area, Osagyefo Oseadeeyo Agyeman Badu II.


As the royal umbrellas rolled skillfully in the skies amidst drumming, the chiefs, dressed in rich kente cloths, performed dexterious traditional dances while riding in palanquins while being paraded through town to the durbar grounds.

The Kwafie Festival which is celebrated every two years but has not been marked for the past 13 years, is used to settle all family disputes and grievances to pave way for the social transformation of the traditional area.

With the drumming of “fontonfroms” of different sizes and with different sounds, cultural dancers seized the occasion to try their skillful dancing feet to entertain the audience at the durbar who had come from far and near.
