Burkinabe Entertainment in collaboration with the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation presents the fifth edition of the Mafrica Music Festival.

The rich tradition of African/World music and culture will be in display on Sunday, July 10 2011 from 10:00AM – 7:00PM in the new amphitheatre at the Marcus Garvey Park in Harlem, New York at 120th street and 5th Avenue.

The fifth annual edition of the MAFRIKA Music Festival, will feature free concerts by both traditional and modern African/World musicians and artists in the incomparable settings of Marcus Garvey Park in Harlem. With thousands of native-born Africans living throughout the five boroughs of New York, it is surprising that large cultural and educational events dedicated to the African Diaspora are few and far between.  

The MAFRIKA Music Festival aims to fill this void by showcasing African/World music, dance and art (cuisine, sculpture, painting and literature) of diverse artistic sensibilities, chosen both from the mother continent and from the Diaspora in America, so that they may bring together members of New York City’s many diverse communities in a celebration of African/world culture. New York City is one of the great cultural capitals of the world, and a legendary crucible for the flourishing and refinement of all kinds of dispersed cultures.

It was therefore the inescapable choice for the fifth edition of the MAFRIKA Music Festival.
The Mafrica Music Festival will be hosted by DJ Kadafi/TTB/DJ Dakori the line up will include:
•   Soul of Anubis – Soul World
•   People Champs –Afrobeat
•   Band Droidz – Dub/Rock/Funk
•   Sekouba – World Reggae
•   Yacouba Diabate – Kora virtuoso from Mali
•   Super Hi-Fi – Dub Reagge
•   Makane Kouyate’s Denbaya – West Africa /Mali / World
•   Quenia Ribeiro – Samba, Brazil
An after party will be held at Shrine Music World Venue http://www.shrinenyc.com

Sponsors of the event include Chef Marcus Samuelsson's Red Rooster , Chase Manhattan Bank, The New York Jazz Workshop http://www.newyorkjazzworkshop.com and many other local Harlem businesses.
