Atlas Intersections Arts Festival's
third week peaks with a late night tribute to Roots music. At 10 p.m.
March 7th, Eme & Heteru take the stage with a
high-energy, one hour show that presents short, dramatic interpretations
of the evolution of popular African rhythms.
This particular production relives the significance of the 70s Afro Roots generation.The band's selection of upbeat dance tunes, chosen from an era of conflict of cultures and of struggles for artistic freedom of expression, celebrates pioneers such as Fela Kuti, Manu Dibango, Miriam Makeba and Ebo Taylor. These Originals inspired artists such as Alpha Blondy, Gigi, and of course the producers of the show- DC's own Eme and Heteru.
The show is on Mar. 7th, 2014, at 10:00 P.M. The venue is Atlas Performing Arts Center, 1333 H Street, N.E. Washington D.C. 20002
