Please join us for an informal gathering of community at Stanford’s magical O’Donohue Family Farm to meet Ghanaian musician and composer Okaidja Afroso. The Portland-based artist draws from the ecological knowledge of the Indigenous Gadangme fishermen of Ghana’s Atlantic Gulf of Guinea to grapple with what it means to commune with the spirits of the sea in the face of climate change and modernization.
Through conversation and music, this event will be a celebration at the intersection of culture, environmental justice, sustainability, and art.
Later in the evening on Nov 11, Okaidja Afroso brings his new multimedia performance Jaku Mumor to Stanford Live’s Bing Concert Hall.
This event is free and open to all. Refreshments will be available at 10:30 AM.
The O’Donohue Family Educational Farm is located at 175 Electioneer Road, Stanford, CA, 94305. The best place to enter the farm is from the Searsville Lot (L-22) entrance. Please note Fremont Road is closed to traffic.
