For this invigorating triple-bill, OkayAfrica—the digital hub of the African New Wave—fills Damrosch Park with the funk of West African beats and the rhythms of Caribbean carnival. Nigerian dancehall king Timaya and Jamaican-born reggae star of the ’80s Sister Nancy join forces to summon the essential elements of carnival culture—music, costume, and dance— alongside eclectic London Afrobeats band The Compozers. Live dancers turn the stage into a vivid, colorful mash-up of African and Caribbean cultures in the heart of New York City.
