From a media release:
Concert for Afrofest - April 22
the Great Hall, 918 Bathurst Street, Toronto
Music Africa is holding a Support Afrofest concert featuring a loaded line-up of four top African music acts:
The Resolutionaries Marimba Band (Zimbabwe), Donné Roberts (Madagascar), Ruth Mathiang (Sudan), and Afrafranto (Ghana). With many other special guests.
Spring into Afrofest and show your support for Afrofest 2011 at the same time.
Some of the details still need to be worked out with the City of Toronto, but Music Africa is confident Afrofest 2011 on July 9th and 10th will take place at Queen's Park. When the details are resolved (e.g. the costs of policing for road closures) we look forward to the biggest Afrofest yet. Music Africa has suggested additional measures that will ensure Queen's Park is left in the best possible shape.
At the April 22nd event Music Africa will be announcing many of the artists who will perform at Afrofest 2011. In addition, all fans attending the Support Afrofest concert will receive free one-year memberships to Music Africa. It will enable members to be kept informed on any developments, and to readily give input in any process to explore venues for the future.
FOUR GREAT ACTS, ONE GREAT CONCERT
The Support Afrofest concert goes on Good Friday, April 22.
At the Great Hall, 918 Bathurst Street (two blocks north of Bloor Street; near Bathurst subway station).
