A fun way to spend an hour. The show starts with a few a capella songs, then a choreographed dance with swords. Worth the entrance fee

I hardly dare to say it because all local people like it very much. But for us it was a nice thing but a bit overrated. Anyway, if you are in town for more Ghana night, you should visit it
