Much like last year there will be music, visuals and the spirit of one of Nigeria’s most noted artists of all times. The added plus for this year’s bash is the presence of Philly-based DJ and Afrobeat maestro, Rich Medina. The co-founder of Jump-N-Funk and producer of the new AfroDisco party, which premieres on Monday, October 15th, Rich is highly celebrated for his contribution to the movement that pushes Afrobeat music and culture. The event also features The Soul Controllers‘ “dynamic duo”, DJs Stylus and JaHsonic with special guest, I-Wah, “the Beat Priest” and the incomparable Painted Lady Performance Project is back with a fitting tribute to the women that framed Fela’s life and music. As always a portion of the door proceeds will be donated to a charity working on HIV/AIDS awareness in Africa. RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
