IT’S BACK!!!! this is the third year of the Afro Latino Festival, and I must say that this year it is bigger and better than ever! You know Negros Americanos will be performing, but they are bringing some real heavy hitters out there. For example one of my favorite artists Kafu Banton– along with Les Nubians and Cultura Profetica! If you don’t know these guys, click the links on their name to get a sample. It’s going to be great!! Did you catch the Negros Americanos cameo in the trailer video?
This event was put together in part by a lovely Panamanian born/raised New Yorker that (like us here at Negros Americanos) has a passion for uniting Latinos and Blacks, as well as bringing the hidden history and stories of Afro Latinos to the forefront…You know of course Negros Americanos had to be part of something like that…It makes perfect sense, even though we are not technically Afro Latinos, our experiences have allowed us to be adopted and christened as such…If you are in the general NY Metropolitan area, hopefully I will see you there !!!!
