The Hogbetsotso Festival, Ghana

The Hogbetsotso Festival, Ghana

Hogbetsotso Festival is celebrated by the people of Anlo in the Volta Region of Ghana. The celebration starts in the month of November at Anloga, which is the traditional and ritual capital of the Anlo state. Festival is a day that unfolds Ewe history and brings to play the memories of legendary exodus and heroic acts of men of boldness and their mystical powers that liberated the Ewe-Dogbo people from the rule of tyrant King of Kings Torgbui Agorkorli of Nortsie in Togo.

The event brings together all the chiefs and elders of Anlo-land at a colourful durbar to mark the annual event in the Volta Region.
