U.Va. presents five-day Afropop festival

The University of Virginia’s McIntire Department of Music will present a festival of high-energy African music that aims to appeal to the mind, body and soul.

The five-day “African Popular Music Festival” will take place Oct. 15 through 19 on Grounds. The line-up features three giants of contemporary African popular music, including: Thomas Mapfumo and The Blacks Unlimited, from Zimbabwe; Abdoulaye Diabate and the Super Manden, from Mali; and Kanda Bongo Man, from Congo. The festival also will include performances by the Free Bridge Quintet and Corey Harris.

Throughout the festival, participants can explore Afropop in many different contexts. In addition to four concerts, there will be a series of workshops, class visits with students, master classes, open rehearsals and panel discussions with visiting artists.
