"FEBRUARY is BLACK HISTORY MONTH and we are dedicating this night to all who have been a part of the struggle, advancements in society, and positive perseverance. PEACE,LOVE,RESPECT ALWAYS."
The celebration takes place tonight at Sonotheque, from 9p to 2a. (the line to get in should be significantly more tolerable than the insanely over-booked Scion events) World renown DJ/Producer/Remixer Ron Trent will be providing the soundtrack.
Here's more about the monthly event from the Sonotheque website:
This monthly event will be a musical tribute of respect to Africa and all that it has touched and influenced in World music and culture. AFRICA HI-FI will fuse music and social consciousness with art and dance. The evening will be geared toward educating people about Africa as the birthplace of music that we all listen to and love, whether it be Jazz, Dance, World Music or Hip Hop. Africa HI-FI is being presented as an open forum that will tap into the creative energy of the Motherland to help elevate the consciousness of all people, thereby creating a positive collective community.
