New Video: Africa Underground at the National Museum of African Art
March 21, 2011 § 1 Comment
The event was billed as Africa Underground; held on February 18, 2011 it sold out so quickly, to the point where it was rumored that scalpers tried to make a quick buck with their tickets on Craigslist. The organizers knew they had a successful show on their hands, and the video and photos are the proof!. The Afro-Brazilian theme was brought to life with drinks, dancing, partying, and art, featuring Zezeh Brazil Samba, Afrobeat music spun by DJs Adrian Loving and Munch, Brazilian cocktails, and mixed media art from Brazil’s Henrique Oliveira and South Africa’s Sandile Zulu. Guests were even invited to workshop and create their own art, led by museum curator Karen Milbourne. Afrofusion was there (of course) for those of you who couldn’t make it. We bring you this video so that you’ll know not to miss the next edition. It’s slated for May 20th, with a Jamaican/West African theme! Get your tickets EARLY! As you can see, a great time awaits. Check out the museum website here. Photos from the inaugural event below, plus more on our gallery page. Bless….
