The Legacy of Obo Addy and His Impact in the Pacific Northwest

For decades, the musical traditions of Ghana were explored and extended by Ghana-born and Portland-based drummer, composer, and bandleader Obo Addy.

Join us for a presentation on Obbo Addy's impact on the Pacific Northwest, including a performance by Okropong.
