Okaidja Afroso: Jaku Mumor
Okaidja Afroso journeys to the U.S. from his home in Ghana, West Africa to bring a powerful experience that draws inspiration from nature-based rituals and ancestral knowledge while creating a soundscape that is modern and unique.
Afroso’s outreach project, Jaku Mumor – Ancestral Spirit, brings rich opportunities for fostering communication and sparking conversation about the challenges faced by indigenous communities around the globe; challenges that will impact us all, though we do not feel them as directly as those working with and fighting against these challenges on a daily basis. In Jaku Mumor – Ancestral Spirit, Okaidja creates a contemporary African oral tradition that needs to be witnessed – a beautiful combination of old and new. Blending traditional dance and rhythms with modern harmonies and updated lyrics, Okaidja speaks through his music in a way that will resonate with anyone who listens.
