#OKAYAFRICADC: South African House Tribute!

Join us this Wednesday in the nation's capital for #OKAYAFRICADC: South African House Tribute!


DC! In the name of promoting the latest music and culture coming from Africa and its diaspora, our #OKAYAFRICADC party commands the capital’s dancefloor. Resident spinner DJ Underdog will provide sounds that are mind-wide and foot-friendly with DJ Clark accompanying the mood of the night. Anything is fair game, but this Wednesday you'll probably hear more South African House than normal! The DJs will paint a sonic wall with the best South African underground tracks. If you love house music this is where you belong!

P.S. Afrobeat, kwaito, kuduro, zouk, soukous, azonto, kukere, coupe decale and hiplife are not exempt from this Wednesday's festivities. What will be lacking are pretensions, commercial radio nonsense, and egos. Learn more about Okayafrica Wednesdays by following our Facebook and Twitter.
