Okaidja Afroso ushers in a fresh breeze of musical flavors from the shores of Ghana’s Gulf of Guinea, drawing from the ecological knowledge of the indigenous Ga-Dangme fishermen, the power of nature-based rituals, and the connections that his ancestors had to the elements, particularly to the ocean. With his new project “Jaku Mumor”, Okaidja’s distinctive musical style extends ancestral traditions and creates a contemporary African oral tradition by combining percussion, guitar, dance and native language vocals.
"One of the undeniable highlights of the evening was the live music performed by Okaidja Afroso. His voice, guitar, and percussion instruments blended into a landscape that was transcendent."
