The Apollo Theater in partnership with World Music Institute presents what has become an annual highlight, AFRICA NOW!. The celebrated event returns to the historic Apollo Theater on Saturday, March 26, at 8:00 p.m. for its fourth year spotlighting emerging and established artists of today’s African music scene.
Drawing upon roots in Niger, Zimbabwe, Sudan, and Ghana for inspiration, each of this year’s artists guitar hero Bombino, the vibrant rhythms of Mokoomba, the retro-pop of Alsarah & The Nubatones, and the neo-soul/afrobeat sounds of Jojo Abot (pictured), brings a unique sound, experience and energy to the stage, integrating African identity with a cosmopolitan spirit and urban vigor.
