Come and experience Africa in the heart of Toronto! Music Africa Inc. is partners with Africa New Music to bring to you AFROFEST 2015, which is shaping out to be our biggest festival yet. With about 35 scheduled live performances, workshops, spoken word artists, dance groups, an interactive children’s village and market place with over 70 vendors, there is something for everyone.
With the Pan American games being held in Toronto in the summer of 2015 we are proud to part of this historic event. Though the details are still being finalized, the Pan Am torch relay will make a stop at AFROFEST on Sunday July 05, 2015. By doing this AFROFEST aims to promote the understanding of African culture by reaching out and attracting to non-African audiences.
The living legendary Zouk group – Kassav, The king of Makossa – San Fan Thomas and the highly energetic and dynamic Congolese group – Wenge Musica Nouvelle Generation featuring Bill Clinton Kalonji, Celeo Scram and Flamme Kapaya are just a few artists who are expected to thrill AFROFEST’s ever growing audience. Stay connected to get more information on the AFROFEST schedule.
