Ghanaian composer Okaidja Afroso speaks about his latest multimedia work that conjures images and sounds of a life in tune with the water. With skillful musicianship and attunement to the gifts of generations past, Jaku Mumor taps into the ancestral rites and rituals of the ocean. Drawing from the ecological knowledge of the Indigenous Gadangme fishermen of Ghana’s Atlantic Gulf of Guinea, Afroso grapples with what it means to commune with the spirits of the sea in the face of climate change and modernization.
