Date: Saturday, March 26th
Time: 8:00 PM

Address: 253 W 125th St, New York, NY 10027
This year’s concert takes us on a musical excursion from desert blues of Niger (Bombino), to the tantalizing sounds of Zimbabwe’s Tonga music (Mokoomba), to the experimental fusion of an up and comer who embodies the cool swag of Ghana’s hipster set (Jojo Abot), showcasing both the origins of African music and its extensions into today’s global pop culture.
Produced by World Music Institute in association with the Apollo Theater.
