Afrobeat Night
Presented by Wagner Student Alliance for Africa (WSAFA)

Afrobeat Night is a celebration of Africa and her rich culture with music and spoken word showcasing Africa's history and our hope for her future. Afrobeat is a mixture of traditional Yoruba music, highlife funk and chanted lyrics, fused with drumming and vocal styles, which started in Africa in the 1970s by the renowned Nigerian multi-instrumentalist, social artist/advocate and bandleader, Fela Anikulapo Kuti.

This end of the year party features Osekre and the Lucky Bastards. Make sure to bring your dancing shoes and friends! Alcohol will be served- cash bar only.
