Harlow is 75: Efua is drumming up memories of Ghana
Harlow is 75: A Celebration of Global Harlow / Sun 30th Oct 2022 am31 11:04am
LAST week, we went down to the Commonwealth Jubilee Tea at Parndon Mill.
Whilst there we met Efua Sey Koi-Larbi.
Efua has been the mainstay of the Black History Month event each year in Harlow.
One of Efua’s passions is drumming, music and culture of Ghana.
So we asked Efua to tell us why culture is so important to her.
To mark the town’s 75thanniversary, Harlow Council and Your Harlow have launched a project which records the diverse history, heritage, and culture of the people and groups which are part of modern-day Harlow.
The Harlow at 75 project is made up of audio-visual recordings of conversations with both individuals and groups that explores their lives abroad before resettling in Harlow. The project reflects that we are a local but global new town and explores themes such as the definition of “Home”.
