Okayafrica TV follows Tuareg guitarist Bombino, Young Fathers and Fantastic Negrito during their SummerStage show in NYC's Central Park.
Okayafrica and SummerStage recently got together to present Tuareg guitarist Bombino, Scottish-Liberian-Nigerian trio Young Fathers and Oakland’s Fantastic Negrito for a live show in New York City's Central Park. Okayafrica TV was there to capture the day's magic as the Niger-based Bombino and his band entranced the crowd with their psychedelic desert blues grooves, Young Fathers stormed through a set packed with heavy beats, rhymes and vocal harmonies, and Fantastic Negrito brought his black roots-blues rock gospel to the park. Watch our Okayafrica TV re-cap of the concert, featuring interviews with each of the performers on the philosophy behind their live sound, above.
