|Obo Addy was a master drummer, award-winning composer, brilliant musician, skilled teacher, beloved husband, father and grandfather.
We hope you can join us for this remembrance
of the life and work of Obo.
This memorial program will include speakers, musical performances, a slide show and a short film.
The end of the program will be open for those
in attendance to share memories.
Help us honor Obo's legacy as we now begin to plan for a traditional ceremony in Ghana
appropriate for his position as a Chief
in the Sowutuom region of Accra.
For this ceremony, Susan will need to fly to Ghana
for traditional services as Obo's title of Chief is
passed from him to the next chosen person.
Obo Addy's family has set up a page on www.indiegogo.com/oboaddy
to help raise funds
for the ceremonies in Ghana. For those who have already contributed, we greatly
thank you for your generosity
which enabled us to present these memorial services in Portland and to assist with covering the expenses associated with Obo's illness.
