The editorial staff of Ogina: Oromo Arts in Diaspora is pleased to announce the release of its sixth issue. This new issue includes a variety of excellent and original creative cultural work by Oromo people and friends of Oromo people from all over the world. The special feature on Roba Bulga includes not only clips from his movie “Jeans and Marto” but also the video of an interview between him and professor Steven Thomas, and two of Roba’s poems — one in English, one in Afan Oromo.
