AUSECUMA BEATS AT KWABO DANCE PARTY AT LEAPS - 17TH JULY - FITZROY TOWN HALL - 4PM -7PM - BOOK HERE https://www.lbmf.com.au/all-events/kwaboparty

Four African diaspora artists on traditional African instruments met four Australian born colleagues and came together to fuse and explore the exciting jazz-flavoured products of their combined talents. With decades of training in traditional Latin and West African music, they left their respective homelands to perform and educate people all over the world, then settled and met each other in Melbourne.

Needless to say, their music is a representation of diversity and cultural heritage.

@Ausecumabeats will be performing live bringing their unique African-fusion grooves to the party, composed of 9 musicians from all around the globe, they reflect the true meaning of community and connection, so on July 17th, they will bring all the good vibes to make our bodies move!

Do not miss this live performance because its going to be FIREEEE!

When: July 17th 2021
Where: Fitzroy Town Hall
Time: 4:00pm

KWABO Afro Tribe

KWABO which means Welcome in Fon (dialect from Benin, West Africa) invites you to experience the exciting sounds, grooves and dances from West and Central Africa

Afrodances are social dances reflecting the ups and downs of everyday life. With a passion for artistic collaboration and human connection, Kwabo Grace invites individuals from all backgrounds and experiences to gather in an inclusive and supportive environment to dance, share and learn from each other. Thus, Kwabo Afro Tribe is an open collective of dancers providing a safe space for movers and shakers of all levels to express, share and exchange.

At KWABO EVENTS, we believe culture is the key to shape an inclusive community which is the reason why KWABO EVENTS provides live experiences promoting French and African culture through arts.

Hello Kwabo Family, To all lovers of African music, if you didn't know already, tonight is the night to discover the difference between Afrobeat and Afrobeats. THAT S makes a Huge difference. Afrobeat was largely created and coined by Fela Kuti in the 1970s. Afrobeat is a groovy sound combining Ghanaian/Nigerian highlife with funk, jazz and a strong drum percussion base. If you love the music or if you are eager to discover more, Turn up your radio on PBS and catch me Today at 5pm as part of The Public Opinion Afro Orchestra interpreting Fela Kuti's amazing songs!!! #afrobeatmusic #afrobeatvsafrobeats #africanculture #allaboutsharingtheculture #africanmusic #africansinging #education #felakuti #africanlegend #musicpioneer #nigeriansinger #multiinstrumentalistlegend #nigerianband #singinganddancing #thepublicopinionafroorchestra #liveperformance #afroaustralasianband #interculturalism #livebandlover @ PBS 106.7FM
