African, Jamaican & Cuban acts set for Afro-Carib Festival next week in Miramar

Next Saturday, February 25th the third annual Afro Carib Festival returns to the Miramar Regional Park Amphitheater. The ultimate Black History Month celebration, the Afro-Carib Festival is a salute to cultures found across the African diaspora. 

According to Alexandra P. Davis, the Commissioner for the City of Miramar, ”Part of who we are as a people, descendants from African and Caribbean roots, are reflected in the music, instruments and dance which make up our rich culture and heritage. When you listen to the lyrics of these artistes and feel the rhythm of the Afro-Reggae – inspired beat, it resonates deep within the soul.” 

“This is what we want to bring to this celebration of our multi-diverse community in Miramar,” the Commissioner emphasized. 

Headlining the show will be Jamaican Reggae superstar Koffee The 22-year-old phenom is fresh off another Grammy nomination after winning her first at just 18 years old. She will be joined by Nigerian Afro-Pop sensation, Tekno, Haitian hitmaker J. Perry, and the wily veteran Cuban performer, Jacob Forever.

The festival rounds out multiple days of activities, which include honoring Reggae legends of old, activists fighting the good fight, and of course, a pre-party sound clash on Friday, February 24. The lineup of celebrations promises to satiate patrons’ cravings for ancestral cuisines from the many vendors offering both Caribbean and African food choices. Artists will also be selling a variety of culturally relevant pieces. 

Every event leading up to the show is free, while tickets to the concert on Saturday are affordably priced at only $25.
