As we enter this eighth year of quality Afro rooted dance events, we are excited to welcome our Brother Jose Marquez back to the Uhuru Afrika stage. We first debuted his work at our events in 2009 when he would send us remixes and edits he was working on. His music helped define the Uhuru Afrika sound and to this day, some of his early tracks are anthems at our party. Jose has become a globally known DJ and producer and regularly travels the globe bringing the music we love to dancefloors from Singapore to Nairobi. He has performed at Uhuru Afrika events in Boston, Mexico and NYC over the years and we can't wait to have him back in Boston with us. We are also very excited to feature an incredibly talented group of young musicians who have come together under the name AfroXchange. We first met them when we last opened for Femi Kuti and they are doing some beautiful things. On this night we will feature them in a collaborative experience with Adam Gibbons.
