“His voice, guitar, and percussion instruments blended into a landscape that was transcendent.” --- LA Dance Review

Pre-show Talk with Artists in Hall at 6:30pm

Quadruple threat Okaidja Afroso is an extraordinary talent. A guitarist, singer-songwriter, percussionist, and dancer, he brings the richness of West African culture to audiences around the world. Born into a family of musicians and griots in the village of Kokrobite on Ghana’s West Coast, he is deeply connected to the musical traditions of the African Diaspora and also embraces a diversity of cross-cultural influences and styles. A former dancer with the Ghana Dance Ensemble, his concerts incorporate multiple art forms and are tremendously exciting to experience. He’ll be touring with his trio, which includes two percussionists, and an array of traditional instruments from Ghana.
