Description

Ghanaian musician, Okaidja Afroso returns to Sitka to share a suite of musical flavors combining percussion, guitar, dance, and vocals. His artistry weaves traditional dance and rhythms with modern harmonies and lyrics. Often performed in his native language, Afroso’s genre-defying songs convey a whole spectrum of experiences—joy, harmony, tragedy, and hope—that embrace what he calls “the rich complexity of the integrated world we inhabit.” Through his distinctive style, he explores the perseverance of ancestral traditions and creates a new, contemporary African oral tradition.
