The Apollo Theater in partnership with World Music Institute presents what has become an annual highlight, AFRICA NOW!. The celebrated event returns to the historic Apollo Theater on Saturday, March 11, at 8:00 p.m. for its fifth year spotlighting emerging and established artists of today’s African music scene.

This year’s concert, hosted by South African comedian Loyiso Gola, takes us on a musical trip across the continent from the Congo’s new generation of musicians who embody the concept of change with Mbongwana Star, to Mali’s Songhoy Blues blending traditional and modern, to the ethereal voice and masterful guitar of Mauritanian-born Daby Touré, Nigerian DJ Nenim, to the soulful punk rock of South African-born TUELO
