Event is Live
Carnegie Hall Presents


Sunday, February 27, 2022 7 PM Zankel Hall
Join young artists and creators from the Weill Music Institute community as they showcase original music and art inspired by Carnegie Hall’s Afrofuturism festival. Anchoring the event is Michael Mwenso and the Shakes, a singular “troupe of global artists presenting music that merges entertainment and artistry” (Jazziz). Together with the young songwriters, they bring to life new music, movements, and stories with their own unique flair. Expect a genre-crossing affair that exemplifies the openhearted and boundary-defying spirit of Afrofuturism.

Part of: Afrofuturism and AfroCosmicMelatopia
