Experience Music Series: Okaidja

April 16, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

$5 – $10

Singer, guitarist, percussionist and dancer Okaidja Afroso is a true musical polymath. His evocative and soulful music charts a journey from the traditional songs of his youth, through to an immersion into the music of the African Diaspora.

Born into a family of musicians and storytellers in a village on the west coast of Ghana, Okaidja Afroso is a singer, guitarist, percussionist, and dancer deeply connected to the musical traditions of the African Diaspora and devoted to bringing together diverse modes of expression in pursuit of global harmony. His four albums, most recently The Palm Wine Sea, chart a journey from his past as a vocalist, percussionist and dancer with the Ghana Dance Ensemble and Obo Addy through to the present, as a confident and mature songwriter and collaborator. His songs call back to the sounds of his youth, illuminating them with the experiences and wonder of a curious traveler, never resting and always seeking.  For more information, please go to: https://okaidja.com.

The concert will be held in building 3. Admission is a donation at the door (no one will be turned away). Parking is $2 (permits available at machines).
