My goal in this project is to examine the Kukyekukyeku bamboo orchestra of Mosomagor, the meaning and importance of this orchestra to the socio-economic life of the Mosomagor community and note the socio-economic changes that the people are experiencing. To gain informant on this topic, I lived fourteen days in Mosomagor,observing, interviewing and participating in the daily life of the people. The people confirmed to me the changes happening in the village since the establishment of Kakum National Park. The major adjustment they are making is to revive their traditional bamboo music to meet the needs of the tourist that pass through the village on their way to Kakum National Park.
