Afrobeats + African

One of the first acts that graced EartH Theatre’s stage was Ethio-Jazz pioneer Mulatu Astatke, whose exceptional performance set a high bar for everyone that’s followed.

Since then, we’ve featured music from around the continent including Mali’s Songhoy Blues, Omah Lay (Nigeria), Belgian-South African artist Petite Noir, a showcase for experimental French-West-African label No Format!, and Tuareg blues guitarist Mdou Moctar, whose LP Afrique Victime was one of the Guardian‘s top albums of 2021.

What’s more, inherently the diaspora has created a breeding ground for musical experimentation and collaboration – along with traditional continental music, we have hosted Afrofuturist, Afro-Latino, African-American, and Afro-European artists whose innovations have steered the direction and evolution of contemporary music, and whose influences can be heard throughout international pop music today.
