The Ga-Adangme, Gã-Adaŋbɛ, Ga-Dangme, or GaDangme are an ethnic group in Ghana and Togo. The Ga and Adangbe people are grouped respectively as part of the Ga–Dangme ethnolinguistic group. The Ga-Dangmes are one ethnic group that lives primarily in the Greater Accra of Ghana. Ethinic Ga family names (surnames) such as Lartey, Nortey, Aryee, Poku, Lamptey, Tetteh, Ankrah, Tetteyfio, Laryea, Ayitey, Okine, Bortey, Quaye, Quaynor, Ashong and Kotei.

The Adangbe inhabit the eastern plain, while the Ga groups, occupy the western portions of the Accra coastlands. Despite the archeological evidence that akers relied on millet and yam cultivation, the modern Ga-Adangbe reside in what used to be fishing communities, and more than 75 percent of the Ga-Adangbe live in urban centers. Other dances in Ghana includes kpalongo performed by the Gas as well, Agbadza by the Ewes, Adowa by the Akans, Bambaya by the Northners, Patsa by the Ga-Adangbes, and many others.

Unlike adowa, adzewa music has attracted very little attention from scholars of traditional African music in Ghana. The paper then investigates this assertion based on the history, songs and instrumental resources of the two female musical types. It was found out that adowa and adzewa rhyme in name and are both predominantly female ensembles having few instruments in common. The two have been associated with Asafo warriors’ groups as well as an ancient practice of keeping vigil with the singing of songs of exhilaration. Adzewa, on the other hand, is an occasional music and dance of the Fanti-Akan and Guan people of the Central Region of Ghana performed mainly during traditional festivals and funerals. Along the Fanti coastline of Ghana, the people of Cape Coast and Apam call it adzewa. Mankoadze and Winneba people call it adzeba while Senya Breku people call it adoba.

These people were absorbed by the Ga-speaking people. The Kpehi of Tema and other Guan groups are said to be among the earliest groups who lived in the Accra plains. Others posit they are one of the cherished lost sheep of Israel. the second divide of belief attributed the unleavened com bread to that of Jewish unleavened flour bread as the ritual food, the red clay painted at the door.

The northern musical traditions belong to the wider Sahelian musical traditions. The music of the coast is associated with social functions, and relies on complex polyrhythmic patterns played by drums and bells as well as harmonized song. The most well known of southern Ghanaian drum traditions is the kete and adowa drum and bell ensembles.

The healing effects of music on human beings is being explored. The effect of sound on proteins provides new insight into the health of plants and human beings. The increased yield and the improved vitality of the plant ingredients by music are very beneficial human consumption. Like few other activities, the music involves the use of the whole brain.
