The world-renowned New York City concert hall Carnegie Hall is continuing to host the month-long, expansive Afrofuturism Festival. Along with the incredible lineup of artists and musicians including Sun Ra Arkestra, Moor Mother and Flying Lotus (the nephew of Alice Coltrane), there is a desirable and interesting event taking place March 25 beginning at 6:30 p.m.
“Journey Into AfroCosmicMelatopia” is “an immersive Afrofuturist experience and party designed and envisioned by artists and creators from the Weill Music Institute community,” says a press release. DJ Reborn and DJ mOma will perform live musical sets and the event promises a unique futuristic experience that includes visual art and dance installations which were curated by Ytasha L. Womack. “This cosmic event is designed by the creative studio Intelligent Mischief and Wakanda Dream Lab.”
This experiential journey is meant to cater to the senses, causing attendees to engage with an “augmented reality” based on Afrofuturistic artistic styles that promote the advancement of the artistic medium that spans across literature, music, theater, as well as visual art.
This offering to the Black community and beyond promises to create a realm of Black discovery and speculative awareness of what life can be through the lens of otherworldly expression.
Make sure you put this event on your calendars and enjoy a fun and immersive party. Attendees must be 21 and over.
