Multiflora Productions co-presents this concert as a part of its first annual DIY international music festival for the whole month of October in multiple venues across Washington, DC.
DC Highlife Stars is an all-star crew of players from the DC African music scene playing an infectious blend of original songs and old gems from Africa.
The DC Highlife Stars have been lighting up dance floors across Maryland and DC with their infectious blend of music from West & Central Africa, along with original compositions that bring the party into the here-and-now. Bandleaders Eme Awa (Eme & Heteru) and Michael Shereikis (Chopteeth Afrofunk Big Band) have assembled a choice crew from among the DMV’s deep African music scene to explore this stripped down, highlife sound. Cameroonians Henri Tanash (guitar) and Joseph “Kobo” Mouliom (bass), and Nigerian Tosin Aribisala (drums) form the core unit, with occasional friends and heavy-hitters sitting in on highlife, afrobeat, soukous and assorted grooves. The vibe is five world-class groove masters having a blast as they sling deep-pocket bass, percolating double-helix guitars and earthy harmonies all so you can forget your troubles and dance!
