The Caribbean Culture Center African Diaspora Institute's 4th annual AFRIBEMBÉ FESTIVAL is set to take our community on a Diasporic journey through space and time! In the spirit of Sankofa, this Pan-African festival will highlight our shared heritage through powerful musical performances that are rooted in ancestral African rhythms and traditions yet that represent the rich diversity of the Diasporic cultures of Brazil, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Puerto Rico, and the Motherland by way of Guinea. Powered by the Black genius of both emerging and renowned African descendant creatives, AFRIBEMBÉ is an opportunity to rejoice in our people's artistry, intellectuality, and musicality.
