Okayafrica Presents Afrobeat x Afrobeats with Davido and Antibalas at Lincoln Center Out of Doors July 29th!

Okayafrica's Afrobeat x Afrobeats brings you the mashup of the summer with Davido + Antibalas at Lincoln Center Out of Doors July 29th!

Join Okayafrica as we transport Lincoln Center Out of Doors to Nigeria—where Fela Kuti’s Afrobeat will meet the contemporary Naija pop music “afrobeats” in a progressive and wholly immersive musical conversation—live, and on stage.

On Friday, July 29, 2016 at 7:30 p.m., America’s number one afrobeat band, Antibalas will collaborate with international superstar, the Lagos ­based afrobeats sensation, Davido, at one of the country’s longest running free outdoor summer festivals.

The two will trade ­off Fela Kuti songs, Davido’s original hits, and more, in an explosive musical mash­up of live instrumentation, Fela dancers, and the latest smash hits fresh from Nigerian dance floors.
