A well-travelled guy in our village--who used to bend our ears with long stories about what he had seen "abroad" (by which he usually meant Accra and Kumase
)--said he had seen Gyamfi play for the famous Kumase
Asante Kotoko, and described his antics to us thus:
On 26 September 1817, he ritually drank palm wine in his capital of Kumase
while 'the whole of the music' of his kwakrannya horn ensemble played.
Subsequent to the journey a family of Kumase
kente weavers, the Asamoahs, have begun to create collectible kente bookmarks in honor of the Nana Tubman Enstoolment in their homeland.
When completed to Kumase
, the Asante capital, in 1903 the total length of the railway from Sekondi fell just a bit short of 269 km (168 miles; this includes five additional miles (8 km) beyond that shown on the accompanying map).
Booked on suspicion of murder were Kumase

In one of the many illustrations to this handsomely produced collection of ten essays on Akan and Asante history, Domfe Kyere of the Kumase

Tom McCaskie reveals through this the difficulties in the transformation of an old African town, Kumase

At a delegates' congress in Kumase

My father travelled a lot to buy supplies for his shop, and so he knew almost every driver who plied the routes between Suhum and Koforidua as well as Nsawam and Kumase
, One of his best friends was a driver who lived at Kyebi and whom we kids called "Papa 'Sei" (for Osei).
It just happens that I went to a concert in Kumase
the last time I was in Ghana, and Kwesi Pee (Agyaaku's son) performed all these good Yamoah's tunes, as well as his own, and he received a standing ovation--he was that impressive.
