AfroHop launches at the Smyth Hotel in Tribeca May 25, from 7pm- 10pm. AfroHop is a new African focused cocktail party bringing together great people and music at unique venues. Held monthly, it will be driven by hot DJ sets mixing music from the African Diaspora: Afropop, African hip hop, reggae, and soul. AfroHop will also integrate artist releases and performances, to expose the best in new African music, and special themes and partnerships, such as African country nights, and alliances with charities, museums, and media. Events will have a limited invite and confirmation list.
The inaugural event includes an album release and guest appearance by Ghana’s Blitz The Ambassador. Blitz’s work has earned him a place on Beyond Race Magazine’s “50 Emerging Artists” list and recognition by hip hop icons The Roots and Talib Kweli. Award winning, internationally syndicated radio series Afropop Worldwide will serve as media partner.
