Portland Twins - Homowo Festival
Sunnyside School Park, 3421 SE Salmon

The Second Annual Twins Festival is coming this September, 2017, in Portland, Oregon! Come celebrate with music, food, dancing, performance and activities.

This is a special occasion celebrated each year by the Ga people of Ghana, West Africa to honor twins and fertility. In this culture, twins have names assigned to them, "Akewle" and "Akuokor" for females, and "Oko" and "Ate" for males. This way, anyone who meets a twin will immediately know it, based on the name. Twins are considered messengers from God and are thereby cherished by their families and community. During the festival, a special mixture of yams, palm oil, and eggs is shared. This mixture, known as "Ottor," is believed to induce fertility with the hopes of having more twins.

Nii Ardey Allotey and Ekome
Ekome is a group of dancers and drummers, led by Nii Ardey Allotey, performing traditional Ghanaian and dance based in Portland.

Dia De Los Muertos: Calling Home The Dead, fundraiser for VOZ
Clinton Street Theater, 2522 SE Clinton

On the Day of the Dead, when the spirits come back to us, the road from heaven must be made easy, they say, not slippery with tears. Film, music, dancing and foods invoking the spiritual/cultural meaning of Dia De Los Muertos as it is celebrated in Patzcuaro, Mexico.

Fundraiser for VOZ Worker's Rights Education Project And KBOO: before this beautiful film, music and dancing from El Colectivo Son Jarocho, Dia De Los Muertos pastries and Horchata. Suggested admission:$7-20, but no one turned away for lack of funds! #diadelosemuertos #kboo #saveDACA #workersrights #mexico #adelante #dayofthedead #portland #milenio #grassrootsefforts #VozHispana #PortlandResistance #MovimientoEnMarcha #SonJarocho #portland #afromexican

As the villagers of Lake Patzcuaro lovingly clean and prepare the graves with beautiful handmade ofrendas, blankets of marigolds, special foods- they prepare for a shared remembrance called Dia de los Muertos: Day of the Dead. They shoot rockets into the heavens to awaken the departed souls and call them home. More tone poem than traditional documentary, Calling Home the Dead transports the viewer in a compelling celebration of the continuity of life and the enduring love of family and friends. Images saturated with color and life join a magical soundtrack of original and local music; and a window is opened to another world. KBOO VolunteersKBOO Community Radio Voz Workers' Rights Education Project Colectivo Son Jarocho de Portland

Colectivo Son Jarocho de Portland plays traditional Afro-Mexican music from southern Veracruz. Join us for an evening of sones & zapateado! We'll bring the tarima - you bring your dancing shoes!! Armando Puentes, KBOO's illustrious program host, will emcee the evening.

"Calling Home the Dead is easily the best film on Day of the Dead that I have ever seen. The filmmakers offer a subtle, visually stunning poetic invitation to experience the beauty and meaning of this spiritual celebration as it unfolds over several days. With minimal but thoughtfully crafted narration, this voyage in richly evocative images and sound emphasizes indigenous practices during el Dia de los Muertos, an invaluable perspective, seldom seen outside of Mexico."
--Alice A. Nelson, Ph.D. Professor, Latin American Cultural Studies and Spanish, The Evergreen State College.
