Tickets and Information
Presented in Partnership with Harlem Stage Uptown Nights and Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute’s Rhythm, Bass & Place series.
WMI's final Let’s Dance party of the season celebrates Caribbean-American Heritage Month and Black Music Appreciation Month, bringing us to Harlem Stage where Afro-Dominican bandleader Yasser Tejeda heightens the energy with his combination of traditional folkloric music and jazz, rock, and Caribbean rhythms. Yasser's WMI performance comes hot on the heels of the May release of his album La Madrugá, a transcendental Afro-Caribbean offering inspired by cycles, specifically those of life, water, and love, and how they pass through different stages and reconnect us to our natural human state.
Keeping us moving both before and after Yasser’s set, DJ Sabine Blaizin (Oyasound) spins global house and soul, Afrotech, Afrobeat, and other diasporic Afro-Caribbean dance music, always with a nod to her Haitian roots.
