Description
  • Beginning in 1986, Obo Addy and his wife Susan formed the Homowo African Arts and Cultures organization, a virtual cultural center with offerings in schools, parks, community centers, and performance venues all over the country. Obo Addy (1936-2012) was a world-renowned master in the traditional music and dance of the many cultures in Ghana; he settled in Oregon in 1978. Homowo is a Ghanaian harvest festival featuring music, dance, food, and crafts. The Ga people celebrate Homowo in the remembrance of the famine that occurred in pre-colonial Ghana. Homowo African Arts and Cultures organized an annual Homowo Festival throughout the 1990s-2000s. After Addy’s passing in 2012, his wife created the Obo Addy Legacy Project. Six years later, and after 32 years of introducing people to the positive music and culture of Ghana, the Obo Addy Legacy Project closed in 2018. The Oregon Multicultural Archives is home to the Obo Addy Legacy Project Collection.
