dc.description.abstract Throughout the years though enormous study has been done on the history and beads making of the Krobo’s, very little attention has been given to their music. The research focuses on the participation and perception of women in the production and performance of Klama music which is the traditional music genre found among the Krobo of Odumase in the Eastern Region of Ghana, and the Dangbe in general. My findings indicated that women are highly regarded in the Krobo society and their musical performances are essential for the sustenance of society. The research also identified some of themes portrayed in their songs. The Krobo women like in any other African society use their musical performances as a platform to deliberate on issues concerning the society. The research employed the qualitative and descriptive methods of research, using research data tools such as interviews and participant observations which aided in analyzing data. Klama music is an important vehicle for the construction of gender identities among Krobo people and a space where women have a prominent role. As such it deserves our undivided attention. en_US
