Thematic Analysis of the Aboakyer Festival Songs & Libation Texts

Dr. Addei Cecilia, Dr. Elizabeth Osei Cynthia

Abstract


This paper analyses the underlying themes in the songs and libation texts of the Aboakyer Festival of the Effutu in the Central Region of Ghana. The paper argues that the central theme and sub-themes of the songs and libation texts of the Aboakyer festival, reflect the worldview of the Effutu tribe of Ghana. The songs and libation texts reveal the Effutus as appreciative, religious, and haters of evil-doers.
