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. Together with his world beat band, Kukrudu, and traditional quartet, Okropong, Addy was one of Ghana's greatest musical ambassadors. Join us for a presentation on Obbo Addy's impact on the Pacific Northwest, including a performance by Okropong.
