The Spread Love crew brings you the 10th Annual celebration of all things African….inspired by the Black President, Baba Fela Anikulapo Kuti.

This being our 10th Anniversary, we’ve put together a very special line up of events including the FONKO film screening, an art event at the High Museum, and of course, funky, funky African music.

The main event ~ The Shâkârâ Party on Saturday, October 28th at Studio No. 7.

Enjoy African art, food, drinks, face paint, film, live percussionists, dance performances, and deejay sets… Featuring DJ Kemit, DJ Ausar of The Kalakuta Show, DJ Marc Meistro & DJ Stylus from DC’s Sol Power Allstars.

We’re mixing everything from classic Nigerian Afrobeat to Kwaito from South Africa… Soukous from the Congo… Cuban Rumba, Afrohouse from the states.. and much more.
