Afropop Worldwide is celebrating 25 years on public radio and they’d love if you and your friends would join them on Sept. 19 in New York City for their 25th Anniversary Concert Gala, featuring Grammy nominee and African lute virtuoso Bassekou Kouyate and Ngoni Ba from Mali. Atendees will have plenty of time to hang with new friends, and meet broadcast personality Georges Collinet and take an experimental tour of Afropop Worldwide’s focus research countries such as Egypt, Ghana and Zanzibar. There will also be African cuisine and wines and thrilling performances. Your support will benefit Afropop Worldwide’s ongoing research and production and will help emerging Afropop and Diaspora artists connect to new fans around the world. For those who cannot join, contributions are being accepted, you can also help by spreading the word. For more information, visit www.afropop.org for additional information.
