Description

The Afro Roots Fest will make its debut in the City of Homestead at the historic Seminole Theater on Saturday, April 27, 2018, with a special presentation of Cuban singer / songwriter Danay Suarez an Islamorada-based guitarist David Feder beginning at 8 p.m.

The four time Grammy-nominated Suarez is a thoughtful, eloquent vocalist who singularly combines soul and hip-hop with reggae and the traditional Cuban styling called son. Her latest offering Palabras Manuales features contributions from Stephen Marley, Idan Raichel, Roberto Fonseca and Jason Matthews. A veteran of many major national and international music festivals, Danay won the prestigious La Gaviota de Inspiración award during the 2017 Festival Viňa in Chile.

Feder fuses his background of jazz and classical music with Flamenco folk stylings and a multi-cultural island vibe. His music has been featured on NPR’s All Songs Considered, World Café Live, PBS Art Loft, NPR’s Folk & Acoustic Music, among other outlets. Feder spent six weeks at the top of the Broadjam World Music Chart with his critically acclaimed album “Black Emerald” and has been featured on All My Children (ABC), Art Loft (PBS), the NBC Good Morning show, National Park Service Educational Videos, and Florida Everglades Documentaries.

Now in its 21st year, the Afro Roots Fest – named one of “South Florida’s Ten Best Music Festivals” by the Miami New Times – is a travelling affair that brings music from the African diaspora and the Caribbean to the masses. The event is made possible with the support of Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs, and the Knight Foundation. Learn more at www.AfroRootsFest.com.
