15th Annual Afro Roots World Music Festival

15th Annual Afro Roots World Music FestivalSaturday, August 3, 9pm – 7th Circuit Studios, 228 NE 59th Street, Miami

For 15 years, the Afro Roots World Music Festival has celebrated the evolution of African culture by featuring some of the best performers from all over the Caribbean, the Americas and African countries such as Senegal, the Ivory Coast, Guinea, Mali and The Republic of Congo. This global connection through the universal language of music has helped the festival evolve into one of Miami’s most culturally diverse events. The festival’s signature youth program, “Let The Children Have Music” is a FREE program providing live music, dance demonstrations, show-and-tell style presentations by festival artists and art projects for children ages 3 to 12. The Little Haiti Cultural Center will be the  host location to this year’s celebration Saturday, August 3, 2013. To commemorate the festival’s 15th anniversary, CAC wants to produce an extra special “Let The Children have Music” program and invite a special musical guest. Your donation will support CAC’s efforts to produce a special “Let The Children have Music” program that’s not only fun for kids of all-ages, but showcases the diverse cultural roots that exist in their community. It is their sincere desire to bring world culture to Miami, and your contribution will aid the effort in continuing to do so. $10 advance tickets and $15 general admission.
