#OKAYAFRICADC's African Dance Fête With DJ Underdog! [3/27]

DJ Underdog and DJ Native Sun return to Washington, D.C.'s Tropicalia for our March #OKAYAFRICADC African Dance Fête!


#OKAYAFRICADC touches down once again in the capital city this Friday, March 27! In the name of promoting the latest music coming from Africa and the diaspora, resident spinner DJ Underdog will provide sounds that are mind-wide and foot-friendly, while DJ Native Sun will accompany the mood of the night. Anything is fair game, but you'll probably hear some afrobeat, tribal house, kwaito, kuduro, South African house, zouk, soukous, coupe decale and hiplife. No pretensions, no commercial radio nonsense, and no laptops allowed. Learn more about #OKAYAFRICADC by following our Facebook and Twitter. See all the info in the flyer below and check out DJ Underdog’s Save The Ritual Pt. 1 mixtape to serve as your party warmup.
