Music Therapy | Improving Health through Traditional Ghanaian Music

Short thesis

We know that our mental, emotional, and physical health are all tied together - but often we only treat one at a time. Join us for a music therapy session, featuring traditional Ghanaian instruments, to explore the role music can play in improving health.


MusicXChange is a US-based 501c3 nonprofit organization that lives at the intersection of music, healthcare and education. Their mission is aimed at preserving traditional music, and promoting music therapy and music education as community building tools. Since 2014 they’ve been working in Ghana, alongside local musicians, organizations and community members to give life to this project. In this session, you will experience a music therapy session featuring a local, Ghanaian musician - using voice and/or instruments to enhance healing and health.
