Africamix - Atlanta Festival

12th and 13th October, 2002
Atlanta, GA, USA

Dear Friends,

I am writing to let you know about an exciting event taking place in
Atlanta, GA on October 12th and 13th, 2002. The Africamix-Atlanta
Festival will take place at The Masquerade, from 11am-7pm both days,
and will feature such artists as Red Rat, Oliver Ngoma, Suave Band,
Done Yute, Yondo Sister, Ras Rebel, Byron J, Gloria, Urukumbuzi,
Dancers Seed and Soi, E.B. Boys, South Sudan Band, Vacenao, Mwamikazi
African Dancers, and Temple Yard. The music ranges from dancehall
reggae to Haitian to Afro-Pop, and from R&B to rap to salsa, with
doses of gospel, soukous from the Democratic Republic of the Congo,
Afro-Cuban, and Rwandese traditional dancing. Two-day passes are $10
each; Saturday only is US$5; Sunday only is $8; and children under 12
are free. All net proceeds will be donated to various organizations
helping AIDS orphans and other vulnerable children in Africa.
