Welcome to SHAKARA!
Back by popular demand … the Spread Love crew brings you the 10th Annual celebration of all things African….
…inspired by the Black President, Baba Fela Anikulapo Kuti.
This being our 10th Anniversary, we’ve put together a very special line up of events including film screenings, art exhibitions, diaspora dialogues, and of course, funky, funky African music.
Don’t miss the main event,
the Shakara Party on Saturday, October 28th at Studio No. 7.

…Featuring yours truly, DJ KEMIT, DJ Ausar of The Kalakuta Show, and DJ Marc Meistro from DC’s Sol Power Allstars.
We’re taking you on a musical journey… making connections across the African Diaspora. …mixing everything from classic Nigerian Afrobeat to Kwaito from South Africa… Soukous from the Congo… Cuban Rumba, Afrohouse from the states.. and so much more.
