The AfroPop! platform highlights the rise of African-Ancestral music, culture, art, business and fashion in popular culture. It's the brain-child of Ifeanyi Ibeto (Dj Kato/AfricanaConnections), Eric Ndelo (Creative Director of DRC ApeParel) and April Hood (Have A Heart Association)
The experience can be summed up in just 2 words: "Afro-sensory overload". Our blends of music from all over the diaspora (Afrobeats, Afro-Latino/Tribal House, Soca, DanceHall, and Western "Pop" Music), paired with live African drummers is experience you can only witness live to understand.
AfroPop! constantaly reaches out to the African/Latino/Caribbean dance communities to display their performance art at the events. A random circle may form right in the middle of the dance-floor!
Artist are also featured each month to paint on-stage live! We welcome businesses/vendors to sposnor the event; It's is big part of what we do, supporting the local economy.
We're coming to Durham, NC, Atlanta, GA, and Columbia, SC this year - dates will be announced soon. We'll add more cities next year. Stay tuned!
