Cuba and Ghana celebrate Africa Day in Japan

Tokyo, May 26 (Prensa Latina) Cuban and Ghanaian artists performed in a concert in this capital on Friday dedicated to Africa Day and motivated by the friendship rooted in blood, cultural, and historic ties that unite the two countries.

Organized by the Embassies of Ghana and Cuba in Japan, the cultural evening “From Accra to Havana, a Journey of Rhythms” took place at the Akasaka Civic Center in Tokyo, with performances by Cuban musician Hector Ferran and Ghanaian flutist Dela Botri, as well as other artists.

At the event, Cuban Ambassador to Japan Miguel Angel Ramirez talked about his country’s unbreakable ties with African governments and peoples and the influence of rhythms from that continent on Latin music.

The diplomat pointed out that Ghana was the first sub-Saharan African country that established diplomatic relations with Cuba on December 23, 1959.

Since then, bilateral cooperation has intensified, particularly in the health sector. Thousands of Ghanaian doctors have graduated in Cuba, and Cuban physicians have worked in that African nation since 1983.

Ramirez took the opportunity to pay tribute to Dr. Kwame Nkrumah and Commander-in-Chief Fidel Castro, the leading promoters of bilateral relations.
