Entertainment of Friday, 2 September 2016
Earlier this year, Ms. Lauryn Hill brought the sounds of Africa and the Caribbean to Brooklyn for the surprise Diaspora Calling! Music festival.
Today, Ms. Hill will be kicking off “The MLH Caravan: A Diaspora Calling! Concert Series,” which will take her across North America, Paris and Tokyo.
And she’s not going alone.
Each show will feature performances from artists across the diaspora including Nas, Machel Montano, Kehlani, Talib Kweli, Little Simz, and Noname.
Nigeria will be represented by Seun Kuti & Egypt 80 for the tail end of the tour.
And Ghana will definitely be present with EL and Jojo Abot joining for select shows.
Ms. Hill mentions, “The MLH Caravan allows me to continue the theme of unity and celebration of the many facets of cultural and artistic beauty throughout the African diaspora while on tour this summer and fall. In these days of tension, tumult, and transition, an exchange of this kind can yield direction, expression, understanding and empowerment as well as connection, self Love and appreciation that hopefully overflows into our respective communities.”
