The Africa Now festival returns to the Apollo Theater for its fifth season, celebrating the best of today's African music scene. You'll discover artists who are rarely heard in the U.S. This annual concert, always a highlight of the Apollo's season, features such acts as Mbongwana Star, a seven-member Congolese band from Kinshasa, the capital city of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Songhoy Blues is a desert punk/blues music group from Timbuktu, Mali, the members of which were forced to their their homes during the civil conflict and imposition of Sharia Law. They were among the principal subjects of documentary They Will Have to Kill Us First. Afrobeat/funk/jazz musician DJ Nenim caps off the evening of boundary-expanding music from Africa.
