Afropop Worldwide's 25th Anniversary Gala w/ Bassekou Kouyate
Don't miss out on Afropop Worldwide's 25th Anniversary gala with Basseou Kouyate and Harry Belafonte!
From its beginnings as an NPR radio show APWW coined the term "afropop" and gave an American audience exposure to the sounds of Youssou N’Dour, Angelique Kidjo, Cesaria Évora, Thomas Mapfumo and several others. For their 25th anniversary, Afropop Worldwide is throwing a gala concert with Mali's ngoni virtuoso Bassekou Kouyate. The night will also feature performances from Omer Ehsas, Mamadou Kelly, the Ali Farka Toure Band and a rare acoustic set by Congolese legend Samba Mapangala.
