Afropop Classic January 7, 2015
Every year in the dead of winter, the much-anticipated world music extravaganza globalFEST lights up New York City. In anticipation of the 2015 edition, we are encoring a show from one of our favorite years. We’ll hear the samba sensation João Nogueira from Rio, conscious rapper BélO from Haiti, Afro-rappers SMOD featuring Sam, son of Mali’s Amadou and Mariam, the M.A.K.U. Soundsystem of Colombia, the brassy Debo Band channeling 1970s Addis Ababa, and others.
