Listen Up: AfroPop! Nation Expands its Empire on 'Local Vibes'

Episode 34

Posted By and on Fri, Mar 16, 2018 at 11:08 AM

In the lead up to the big "Bantu Experience" party at the Gantt Center on March 17, we brought in two of the three co-founders of AfroPop! Nation: Ifeanyi Ibeto, aka DJ Kato; and April Hood. We talked with the duo about the beginnings of their Afrocentric party promotions, African culture in America, appropriation and more.

For those who prefer the written word, be sure to check out Mark Kemp's feature on AfroPop! Nation from this week's print issue. And of course, catch up with all our past episode on iTunes and Stitcher, or just type "Local Vibes" into your Spotify search bar and find us there.
