Join us for an evening of celebration of the life of an African musical icon, political activist and inventor of Afrobeat.
We will be exploring his life and struggle through music, live video mixing and libations and dancing. Be prepared for a fully emersive experience!
This season, Uhuru Afrika is excited to be back in the original Neighborhood we first launched this movement back in 2008. The venue La Fábrica Central is also a perfect fit for us logisticlly and culturally. They are excited to have us join them and we encourage you to come early and enjoy some amazing food and cocktails in the restuarant before you dance throught the night with us. We are also very excited to bring on board two rotating resident DJs that will join Adam Gibbons. They are Dj Brazao from Cape Verde and DJ Big Bear from Nairobi. We welcome as part of the team and can't wait to make some amazing music and memories together!
We are blessed for the opportunity to gather once again to reconvene and re-affirm our commitment to one another and to the groove. To honor the spiritual and energetic magic that happens when like-minded individuals that are typically disenfranchised by the mainstay nightlife venues are given their deserved space to come together... to commune, to create community and celebrate life, love, music and one another.
Love & Thanks to our support/partners:
