Tafi Atome Cultural Village is home to the famous Tafi Atome Monkey Sanctuary and Nature Reserve. Eco-tourism, sustainability and cultural enrichment is very much the focus in the Cultural Village. Here one can learn all about colourful kente cloth weaving, dance, singing, music and folklore. There is also a small visitor centre.
At the nearby Tafi Abuife Kente Weaving Village visitors can watch authentic kente cloth being hand-woven with colourful designs that are much copied over the world.
It's now possible to arrange extended Study Tour stays at the Tafi Cultural Institute for those wishing to study Ghanaian drumming, music (Borborbor/Agbadza/Adewu/Akpi), voice and dance. These stays are helping to fund a non-profit community project to build a village recording studio, an initiative being championed by a community recording studio in Glasgow.
