It is said to have its origin from the university or Katanga Hall of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology. The dance known as, on the left or banging is displayed at every university event.
Now the dance has spread to Senior High Schools across the Country. It is simply a form of jungle matching but this time the left leg is made to bang.
The movement should correspond with the swinging of the arms also from the right high to the lower left limb or vice versa. In all things flexibility is key.
The energy dance goes well with slow to mid-tempo music though the skilled, can manage with fast songs. The females also have their own variation but it is marked with as usual a soft bang.
Though the Katanga Hall can boast of the craft, its purpose is largely unknown. But the students wouldn’t care a hoot only about how it feels.
“It feels like at the start of a competition you were last and suddenly you became first,” said Frederick a student of KNUST Senior High School.
“ It gives us vim to face anything in life,” said Arthur a student of Kumasi Anglican SHS.
“It releases stress,” claimed Comfort another student of Kumasi Anglican.
