Africa In Your Earbuds LIVE! The Sudan Edition 6.28 @ The Ace NYC


This week our  Africa In Your Earbuds LIVE! series continues with a verrrrry special Sudan edition! Sudan's own DJ MoMA and Sinkane will rock the decks while we lounge and chillllllll on the couches and sneak in a dance (f'ing cabaret laws). We'll drink another toast in honor of South Sudan's independence, and show our unity with some ancient traditions (drinking). Once again the event is FREE, no list needed.

Come play our new #afrilibs game (get it Africa + Mad Libs, duhhh). Our best one from last week? "No matter how you fix a chimpanzee's computer, it's still pretentious."

For a taste of what you'll hear, check out our Africa In Your Earbuds mixtapes from featured spinners Sinkane, Chief Boima, Lamin Fofana, and DJ MOMA.
