Ghana’s ambassador to Japan honours Santrofi during Tokyo concert

Ghanaian band Santrofi has been receiving plaudits for marketing Ghana through its tours across the globe.

After touring Europe and other parts of the world a few years ago, the highlife band is in Japan for a 13-city tour.

During their third concert in Tokyo on July 8, 2024, Ghana’s ambassador to Japan, Genevieve Edna Apaloo, presented a bouquet to the band in appreciation of its sterling performance.

Nicknamed ‘Ghana’s ambassadors of culture’ by the Japanese, the Santrofi band was given a warm welcome to Japan by the country’s officials.

Since the inception of the tour, the band has been marketing Ghana’s arts and culture by performing highlife and other indigenous Ghanaian music types, while clad in Ghanaian apparels.

The tour which started on the 25th June, 2024 will end on 16th July, 2024. It was put together by Minon, a company founded by one of the biggest Buddhist leaders in Japan called Dr. Daisaku Ikeda.
