Music Africa of Canada presents the 32nd annual edition of AFROFEST, highlighting African music from July 17 – 26, 2020
Toronto, ON (July 14, 2020) – Music Africa of Canada Inc. is excited to present AFROFEST Online 2020 with performances by about 30 local and international artists, dance tutorials, interviews drumming and DJ Sessions from July 17 – 26, 2020.
The devastating effects of COVID-19 have caused us to cancel all our outdoor events. Despite this, we are committed to showcasing the beauty and diversity of African music and culture on our platforms. There will be daily presentations of 2 – 4 artists on our youtube.com channel: @AFROFEST at 8:00 PM. Please subscribe to enjoy all the shows.
AFROFEST is proud to represent an incredible roster of acts from over 15 countries, including Congo, Ghana, Burkina Faso, Nigeria, Eritrea, Cameroon and Morocco and more, presenting different vocal, music, drumming, dance, traditional and contemporary artistic styles. The key presenters of AFROFEST Online 2020 are the African Canadian artists Slim Flex (Ghana), Kibra (Eritrea), Tyshan Knight (Jamaica) and TOME (Nigeria) who represented Toronto in the first ever AFROFEST Africa which was held in Accra – Ghana in December 2019.
Music Africa is also raising funds to boost the fee paid to artists, design and present programs to support other artists who did not perform at AFROFEST Online 2020 and to cover some of our operational costs. We greatly appreciate the continuous support of the community and it is our hope that you can help us to achieve our fundraising goal.
