In this beat-driven double bill, OkayAfrica—the source for “all that’s hot and jumping in the new African renaissance”—fills Damrosch Park with the spirit of African soul and the rhythms of chart-topping club music. DJ Poizon Ivy, official DJ of the Dallas Mavericks and the first female mixer to grace the airwaves at her local radio station, kicks things into high gear with her irresistible Afrobeats and multicultural mixes. Then Nigerian singer-songwriter Adekunle Gold takes over the stage with his signature blend of urban high-life and pop-infused songs. Proudly weaving together Yoruba, English and Pidgin English, Gold’s soulful Afropop will keep you feeling inspired all night long.
