OD Bonny returns to Maine!

Children and adults are welcome for a performance of traditional Acholi music and dancehall/Afrobeat by our own South Sudanese singer, songwriter, and producer! Dance to OD’s traditional hits like Lodongo Acholi, Apoka Poka, Be Mine, and Weng Acholi!

Copies of OD’s new children’s book A Feast for Joseph written with Terry Farish will be given away at the event (while supplies last). The book, set in Portland’s Kennedy Park and the Kyangwali Refugee Settlement in Uganda, was inspired by OD’s own journey from South Sudan to Maine.

This Beautiful Blackbird Children’s Book Festival event is sponsored by I’m Your Neighbor Books and Mayo Street Arts with special thanks to the Portland Food Co-op.
