In March 2015, Kakatsitsi will undertake a research and development project with the Korle Wulomo (traditional priest)
who is the guardian of the nature spirit of the Korle Lagoon in Accra. They will learn the spiritual songs, rhythms and dances
used by the traditional priesthood of the Ga people which they will then re-arrange in their own unique manner.
