The band came out to support a great cause on Saturday, October the 12th @ Tropicalia DC
We are spreading the word to artists who can help move change along for under age marriage victims. A poem written by Orode Faka, founder of She R.O.C.K.S. organization which is focused on the same goals, was read by Eme. By reading the poem we hope to encourage others to create art, literature, music, anything of expressive value in support of She R.O.C.K.S. We will have more on this shortly, stay tuned!

Washington DC pays tribute to Nigerian Novelist,
Critic and Political Activist, Chinua Achebe at the Mellon Auditorium.
We were a last minute addition to the festivities, and are grateful to
have had the opportunity to be a part of such a special way to celebrate
Professor Achebe's life with his family, peers, friends and dignitaries
from around the world. The event was hosted by Johnetta Cole, former President of Spelman &
"An evocative Arts exhibition featuring Obiora Udechukwu and other
artists, as well as a reception began the celebrations. While the
background Afro-beat music of Eme and Heteru electrified the audience.
Other musical and dance acts of the evening for Achebe's celebration
were the riveting Igbo masquerade dancers, such as "Oja (Ojii) Onu"
"Aga ba Masquerade, and "Ijele Masquerade, who performed to honor the
dead, a person they believed lived in "immortal state" in spiritual
world. " - Huffington Post
Our music continues to attract and interest audiences from all walks of life, and as we deepen our connections in the community, we find ourselves able to unite people of all races, creeds and beliefs.
In addition to performing on several occasions at the Smithsonian's African Museum's "Africa Underground",
the band enjoys multi-cultural appeal with invitations to performances
at the Bob Marley Tribute in Wilmington, Delaware, The Shrine in NYC,
City Club of Washington and many more such eclectic venues.
