David Alo (aka Dafidi) in ERE YA!  (Let’s play with each other) – January, 2018

David Alo of DEV, UEA, Norwich explores the use of Culture and Heritage as tools of Mediation and Development.  Highlife Juju music is a popular music genre in West Africa. It is popular among the various ethnic and religious groups and used variously in the wider social space as a tool of admiration, veneration, promotion of social values, praise-singing, conflict resolution and development. Join Oluseye ‘Dafidi’ Alo in ‘ERE YA’!

“Development is not synonymous with economic growth alone. It is a means to achieve a more satisfactory intellectual, emotional, moral and spiritual existence. As such, development is inseparable from culture” – UNESCO
