THE POWER OF WUN
The first things youll notice about Londons Nigerian singer Wunmi are her wild hairstyles, funky clothes, and sleek muscular frame. Then she opens her mouth. What comes out only makes you want to do one thingdance. The touring vocalist happens to be an Afrobeat goddess, singing house and Fela Kutiesque tunes with an explosive bravado thats addictive. Seriously, its hard for anyone in the audience to keep still. Plus, she dances like theres no tomorrow! Tonight, she sings at the Next Level Party, while house vets DJ Disciple, DJ Rich Medina, and up-and-coming turntablist in the underground house scene DJ Sabine lend their skills to raise funds for the annual International African Arts Festival. Prepare to break a sweat!
