The legacy of master Ghanian drummer and longtime Portlander Obo Addy lives on in this festival, which honors Ghana's music, dance, and culture. Homowo, a traditional harvest festival of the Ga people, was produced by Obo and Susan Addy in Portland for 15 years; after Obo's death in 2012, drummer and dancer Nii Ardey Allotey carried the torch and blended the existing event with the Twins Festival, a fertility celebration. The bountiful event kicks off with a drumming procession, followed by dance and musical performances, West African and Caribbean storytelling by Habiba Addo, and more.
