Festival Description

Local non-profit organization Community Arts and Culture presents the Afro Roots World Music Festival. Celebrating the production of quality musical presentations throughout Miami Dade County, the festival has been able to expand its reach beyond local South Florida artists by bringing in performers from African countries such as Ghana, Senegal, Ivory Coast, Guinea, Mali, and the Republic of Congo. Furthermore, the festival celebrates the evolution of African culture in our community by presenting local artists that represent the musical cultures from Brazil, Cuba, Colombia, Haiti, and other Caribbean and American countries. This global connection through music has helped the festival evolve into one of Miami’s most culturally diverse events.
