#OKAYAFRICADC Azonto Fiesta IV!

Don't miss out on Okayafrica DC's latest installment of Azonto Fiesta this Wednesday!


Azonto will never die! Kukere and azonto are the hottest dances hands-down. Since the inception of #OKAYAFRICADC's Azonto Fiesta, there's been a deep demand to keep it going. In the name of promoting the latest music and culture coming from the diaspora, Okayafrica continues it’s wave of mind-wide parties in the nation’s capital Washington, D.C. This Wednesday, November 20 DJ’s Underdog  and Mate Masie will grace the stage at Tropicalia for Azonto Fiesta IV! Anything is fair game, but you’ll probably hear more kwaito, hiplife, kuduro, South African house, zouk, soukous, coupe decale and, of course, azonto! No pretentiousness, no commercial radio nonsense, and no drama. See all info in the flyer below and join the event on Facebook!
