Okayafrica Teams Up With LargeUp & Walshy Fire On Miami's First 'Afro Soca' Party

Okayafrica is joining forces with LargeUp & Major Lazer’s Walshy Fire to host Miami’s first 'Afro Soca' party.

Okayafrica is teaming up with our LargeUp family and Major Lazer’s Walshy Fire to host Miami’s first 'Afro Soca' party this Tuesday, March 22. The night’s festivities will celebrate the new hybrid of Caribbean and afrobeats sounds that have been heating up both sides of the Atlantic—a style heard on tracks like "Runtown," Wizkid & Walshy Fire’s “Bend Down Pause” and Olatunji’s “Oh Yay.” It will also double as the release party for DJ Jam Central‘s upcoming Afro Soca mixtape.

The Afro Soca party will take over Walshy Fire’s Rum & Bass night at Miami hotspot Coyo Taco. The night will feature sets by Walshy Fire, DJ Jam Central, and DJ Ryan Sayeed, plus Rum & Bass’ Corey Chase and Silent Addy.
