You can't miss this one! Blue Nefertiti's "Paris@Night" grand finale show and after-party will take place on Thursday, August 12 at Le Poisson Rouge, 158 Bleecker Street in New York City. Doors open at 11 p.m. for the highly anticipated 11:30 p.m. show.
This grand finale show is jam-packed with flavor that sets the stage for a dynamic artistic exchange through music, including Afropean, soul, hip-hop, drum 'n' bass, jazz, house, samba, reggae, spoken word and cabaret.
Blue Nefertiti's "Paris@Night" grand finale show will provide a platform for inspirational, live collaborations with an astounding group of innovative artists that includes Blitz the Ambassador, DJ J. Period, John Banza, Kenny Muhammad ("The Human Orchestra"), Les Nubians, Queen GodIs, Tony Cortes, and Jamal Monteilh (Architext Demolition). On video will be Amelie Chabannes, Antonia Dias Leite and Sebastien Farges, along with live painting by CeCe Carpio (Trust Your Struggle]) and live illustration by V.J. Shantell Martin.
The after-party continues until 4 a.m. with DJ J. Period, Nadeeah Eshe and Birane Thiam.
Although the Blue Nefertiti "Paris@Night" journey is about to wind down, the promo tour for Les Nubians' highly anticipated third album, "Nu Revolution," is about to kick off. It's all a part of the evolution for the next exciting phase of the divine Les Nubians' journey. We invite you to come along.
Our "Africa Sings!!!" review says it all: "'Paris@Night' is pure seduction. Blue Nefertiti heats up the night, as each uniquely rendered number in her highly applauded mixed bag takes on a delightful life of its own. 'Paris@Night' scores a perfect 10 in content, performance, originality and audience response and continues to be the 'Africa Sings!!!' No. 1 cabaret choice. We highly recommend that you make it yours."
