Three exciting African music acts, Mbongwana Star, Batida, and Young Paris are set to perform on Sunday August 14th at Central Park’s Rumsey Playfield as part of the SummerStage festival. Presented by OkayAfrica, the three will each bring their unique style of modern African beats to the stage.
Kinshasa’s Mbongwana Star are an eclectic outfit who blend Congolese rhythms with recycled instruments and post-punk bass into the distorted electronic sound […] Angolan-Portuguese producer Batida aka Pedro Coquenão’s music plays like an electronic blend of Angolan kuduro, semba and afro-house sounds. […] French-Congolese rapper Young Paris is fresh off the release of his African Vogue album. He’ll be bringing his entrancing dance performance, electronic beats, and “African flyness” to the show.
You won’t want to miss out on this amazing free show. Read the SummerStage events page for more information about each separate artist.
