Adowa is a popular traditional dance performed mostly by the Akan-speaking tribes in Ghana such as the Ashantis, Bonos, Akims, Akuapims, and the Kwahus.
Adowa is believed to have originated from the imitation of the movements of a royal antelope. In the Akan language, particularly the Asante Twi dialect, the royal antelope is called “Adowa” while it is called “otwe” in Fante. The dance was named after this animal.
