PRAx and the Office of the Provost Present: Okaidja Afroso, Jaku Mumor

In "Jaku Mumor," multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter and dancer Okaidja Afroso dives into his cultural roots by collaborating with Indigenous Ga-Dangme fishermen to share the artistry of their a cappella singing and chants in his music and via film. A moving tribute to the fishermen of Ghana in their fierce determination to survive the impact of evolving fishing practices on traditional cultures, the program joins musical and visual elements to produce an unforgettable experience that is at once aesthetic, cultural and environmental.

PRAxKIDS is available for this event. We partner with KidSpirit to provide a supervised children's program. Visit our PRAxKIDS page for more details.
