The 7in1 for Peace band including Sheriff Ghale participated in the World Damba Festival 2012 @ Tufts University, a vibrant cele-bration of the music, culture and religious traditions of northern Ghana which took place Friday, September 14 through Sunday, September 16 at the Perry and Marty Granoff Music Center on Tufts’ Medford/Somerville campus.

In addition to offering cultural affirmation and festive celebration, the WDF 2012 Washington Tufts Alliance an opportunity for discussion of important community development issues and business promotion. Northern Ghana is on the frontline of many global challenges: climate change, community health, economic disadvantage, changing gender roles, the role of traditional chieftaincy within the modern state, ethnic conflict, and Islam’s encounter with the contemporary world.
