Afropop Worldwide Residency at Threes Brewing

Afropop Worldwide is excited to announce that we are curating a live music residency for the month of March at Brooklyn venue Threes Brewing! The series will present New York-based musicians performing the excellent African and Afro-diasporic music featured on our programs, live at a beautiful venue. Join us for the first three Tuesdays in March to hear live music from the Democratic Republic of Congo, Colombia, Benin, Ivory Coast, Zimbabwe and Nigeria.

Building on over 25 years of Peabody Award-winning public radio programming, Afropop has organized this project as a new way for local audiences to enjoy the music that we share with you. The music ranges from traditional Afro-Colombian bullerengue, to Congolese rumba and ndombolo, to Afro-jazz from Benin. Nigerian DJ and Afropop collaborator DJ Nenim (Eko Fo’ Show/Seeds of Afro) will be spinning eclectic rare groove and contemporary African pop to keep you dancing all three nights.

Come on down to one or all of our Afropop Worldwide Residency shows in March!
