Hello good people,
Five years have passed since Afrikajump was launched with love for all things humane; African; global and cultural, and in these years of mostly internet silence we have gathered more knowledge and information, created new ideas, and advanced on our initial goals.
We are happy to be back, with a goal/promise to be more out here with our activities in 2017.
One of our big news is that Afrikajump has evolved into a full fledged international network of people from various walks of life who are qualified to handle any demands of music and multimedia productions, culture and tourism news and information, food, fashion, and technology which you may have.
Attached are photos of this year’s highlights; for us, with Nigerian and South American music collective Okwei Odili + Aweto band, collaboration by Brazilian visual artists Nerize Portela and Silvia Leme, photos by Heder Novaes with cool gig posters by Natalia Arjones.
In this post you will also find photos of some remarkable events we witnessed this year, from spiritual gatherings like Yemoja festival in Salvador, Brazil, to culturally influenced Atomic Afro Fest, Festival Latinidades in Brasilia, and even from the world of sports with the impressive 2-0 victory of Nigeria’s Super Eagles over their Danish counterparts in this year’s Olympics; to sweet Jazz music by A Cinq in dimly lit beautiful Casa da Mae in Rio Vermelho.
Special thanks everyone, and have a prosperous and peaceful 2017.
