Description (eng)
Ghanaba (left) and Mutabaruka. The Remembrance Night in the course of the 3rd Panafrican Festival (Panafest 1997 in Accra, Cape Coast, and Elmina) started with a torch procession to Cape Coast Castle where Mutabaruka performed some of his poems and gave a speech on the postcolonial aftermath of transatlantic slavery. He was joined by Ghanaba, the late Ghanian masterdrummer who co-starred with Mutabaruka on this very location in the film Sankofa. The group of Ghanaba represented scenes related to slavery.
