Awesome Tapes from Africa

When: Thu., Sept. 18, 9 p.m. 2014

Awesome Tapes from Africa is the personification of the popular blog started by Brian Shimkovitz after studying hip hop in Ghana. Realizing that the majority of the popular music in Ghana never crosses the nation’s borders, Shimkovitz made it his mission to share the wealth with the rest of the world. Detroit’s own African-influenced drum and dance troupe, Bambuti, will also be performing.
