On Wednesday, June 28 @ 3 am, From the Soundboard will feature recorded live performances and album selections of various artists who will perform for the upcoming Afro-Latino Festival NYC 2017.
The Afrolatino Festival NYC is a multi-day event celebrating the contributions of Afrolatinos through networking, cultural exchange, artistic showcases, culinary presentations, and education. It serves as an important opportunity for organizations working within Afrolatino communities to raise social awareness and highlight their work. Our mission is to provide a positive public space to pay tribute to the African roots of people from Latin America and the Caribbean.
This year is especially important because it also serves to commemorate the International Decade for People of African Descent declared by the U.N (2015-2024) and its principles of "justice", "recognition" and "development". [Press Release]
