Here are photos from the just ended Kente festival by the people of Agotime kpetoe traditional area in the Volta region of Ghana.

A little over two decades ago, Nene Nuer Keteku III, Konor of Agotime and Custodian of the Ewe Kente, Chiefs and people of the Agotime Traditional Area, revived a domestic ritual – the purification of the weaving loom and accesories – into a traditional festival  known as AGBAMEVORZA or KENTE FESTIVAL held in Agotime-Kpetoe and other villages in the Volta Region in Ghana. 

About the Kente festival

Reflecting the complexity of human society, the technical composition of the EWE KENTE is the web of human emotions, cultural values, social identity, ideas, and even dreams that have been woven inextricably into one unit.

Agortime-Kpetoe (also known simply as Kpetoe) is a small town and is the capital of Adaklu-Anyigbe District, a district in the Volta Region of Ghana.
