Okayafrica TV follows Tuareg guitarist Bombino, Young Fathers and Fantastic Negrito during their SummerStage show in NYC's Central Park.
<p>Okayafrica and SummerStage recently got together to present Tuareg guitarist <a href="http://www.okayafrica.com/tag/bombino/" target="_blank"><strong>Bombino</strong></a>, Scottish-Liberian-Nigerian trio <strong><a href="http://www.okayafrica.com/tag/young-fathers/" target="_blank">Young Fathers</a></strong> and Oakland’s <strong><a href="http://www.fantasticnegrito.com/" target="_blank">Fantastic Negrito</a> </strong>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.</p><p><div class="preroll-video"></div><ora-player></ora-player></p><p><a href="http://www.okayafrica.com/wp-content/uploads/okayafrica-summerstage-young-fathers.jpg"><img type="lazy-image" data-runner-src="https://assets.rebelmouse.io/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpbWFnZSI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXNzZXRzLnJibC5tcy8xMDM5NDcyMi9vcmlnaW4uanBnIiwiZXhwaXJlc19hdCI6MTY3MDAxMTkzOX0.8LF_SGqbAovsG5U8BZbkmjfOhB3OAreGMO77-kghYEs/img.jpg?width=980" id="6632e" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="0818134d2d8f6f10a659f1f3dea1a7cf" data-rm-shortcode-name="rebelmouse-image"></a></p><p><em>Photo by Jake Remington (<a href="http://collabonyc.com/" target="_blank">Collabo!</a>)</em></p>
