The influence of Africa and its culture is a global phenomenon , nowhere more evident than in music.  This annual concert, a highlight of the Apollo's season, celebrates the best of today's African music scene showcasing artists who have drawn from their roots for inspiration and transplanted them onto the global music landscape.

This year's concert takes us on a musical excursion from desert blues of Niger with Bombino to the contagious rhythms of Zimbabwe's Mokoomba to the smooth vibe of Alsarah & The Nubatones' signature East African retro-pop to the experimental fusion of an up and comer who embodies the cool swag of Ghana's hipster set, Jojo Abot.
