Afropop Worldwide invited New York-based artists from Africa and the diaspora to their Brooklyn office for a live broadcast on Saturday, February 11, 2017.

In case you missed it, here is the full six-hour broadcast which featured interviews with singer and keyboardist Jean Gnonlonfoun of Beninois band Jomion and the Uklos; urban dancer, teacher and choreographer Kim D. Holmes from New York; bandleader and percussionist Courtnee Roze from New York; and bandleader, singer and composer Nkumu Katalay from Congo. In the first half of the show, Alejandro Van Zandt-Escobar, Afropop writer, producer and DJ from duo Eko’ fo Show, set the tone with music from Afropop’s in-house record collection and producer Morgan Greenstreet interviewed our director of new media, Akornefa Akyea, for a throwback discussion on Ghanaian hiplife music. Enjoy music and voices from Brooklyn, the place Afropop has called home for over 20 years.
