Chicago Afrobeat Project and Aurelio Martinez co-headline the 18th Annual Afro Roots World Music Festival at the North Beach Bandshell Saturday, September 3, 2016, 5 p.m. This year we will feature the Chicago Afrobeat Project. This group has risen among afrobeat groups after emerging as one of the first nationally touring American bands to take the sound to the masses. Over the years the band has mastered a sound that successfully weaves the uniqueness of the Chicago music scene with a distinct Nigerian style of music. Also featured at this years festival is Aurelio Martinez, a global representative of the Garifuna culture by way of Honduras. The opening act will be Uma Galera. Miamis experimental reggae band Uma Galera is a 8-piece powerhouse playing Latin-tinged grooves laced with rock, funk, ska and more to create what they call world soul music. Finally, spinning the best from the different eras of World Music will be DJ Moses. All-ages presale tickets are $15, admission is $25 on the day of. #ARWMF18 @AfroRootsFest
