Babasiko is a recreational music and dance of the Southeastern Anlo Ewe of Ghana, performed mostly at social gatherings; festivals and funerals. Babasiko is flirtatious in character. Its characteristic form is the strutting and bobbing up and down and a display of theatrical elegance. The dancers portray courtship through movements of the arms, eyes and total facial expression. Proposals of intimacy can be seen accepted or rejected through bodily gestures.
