Music Africa, a community non-profit working to promote African music in the Toronto area, presents a free concert series celebrating a diverse range of artists with African heritage who call the Toronto area home. The concert series will take place every Saturday night during the month of February at Mamaland Resto-lounge from 9-11 pm.
The series aims to promote local African artists while highlighting Canada’s rich African cultural heritage.
The first concert in the series took place February 9 with a performance from Riddim and Jazz Crew, a cover band specializing in Caribbean Jazz. There are still two concerts left in the series. On the evening of February 16, music lovers can hear from Dieufaite Charles, a versatile TTC subway musician who blends the musical styles of his Haitian history, R&B, reggae, and soul to inspire and uplift his listeners. The final performance on February 23 is an appearance from Congolese-born singer, dancer, poet, and instrumentalist Fumu Jahmez.
