NYC: AfroHop Launches with Blitz the Ambassador

AfroHop is a new African focused cocktail party bringing together great people and music at unique venues. Held monthly, it will be driven by hot DJ sets mixing music from the African Diaspora: Afropop, African hip hop, reggae, and soul. AfroHop will also integrate artist releases and performances, to expose the best in new African music, and special themes and partnerships, such as African country nights, and alliances with charities, museums, and media.

We’re so excited on this new event that we are serving as a media partner for inaugural launch this Wednesday at the Smyth Hotel. The event will also serve as an album release and guest appearance by Ghana's Blitz The Ambassador who just released an excellent full-length record titled Native Sun. Check out review of the new record and be sure to check back to stream our forthcoming new program “The Trans-National African Hip Hop Train” which will feature the new album as well as an interview with Blitz.

Doors open at 7pm. Space is limited.
