#OKAYAFRICADC AZONTO FIESTA 7/17!

Make sure you head out to the #okayafricadc party on 7/17 to experience the hottest new age african DJs.


Azonto Fiesta is back for one last round in DC! The first two parties were so good that we had to do it one last time for the summer. In the name of promoting the latest music and culture coming from Africa and the diaspora, Okayafrica commands the dance floor in #DC. Resident spinner DJ Underdog will provide sounds that are mind-wide and foot-friendly, DJ Native Sun and DJ Kweks accompany the mood of the night. Anything is fair game, but you will 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 egos allowed. Learn more about Okayafrica Wednesdays by following our Facebook and Twitter.
