PAP World Music Series Presents: DC Highlife Stars Unplugged
June 29, 2019 @ 9:30 pm - June 30, 2019 @ 12:00 am
Meet us at Port-au-Prince – a crossroads for those who love Haiti, her culinary and artistic offerings, as well as the arts and culture beyond her shores. Indeed, we aim to be a true “port” where the world intentionally collides! Coming up in our music series, on June 29 we are bringing back DC Highlife Stars Unplugged!
DC Highlife Stars have been filling up dance floors across the DC area with their infectious blend of music from West & Central Africa, along with original compositions that bring the party into the here-and-now. Bandleaders Eme Awa (Eme & Heteru) and Michael Shereikis (Chopteeth Afrofunk Big Band) have assembled a choice crew from among the DMV’s deep African music scene to explore this stripped down approach to highlife, afrobeat, rumba, reggae and assorted grooves.
