Description

This ensemble was acquired after the 2014 Akwambo festival from Efua Nyankyia, the female leader of one of the dance groups of No. 2 Company. Members of the various subgroups of this company take great pride in producing new uniforms every year. In many cases men and women wear the same clothing - but leaders may sport slightly more elaborate dress.
