DJ David Castellano SQ

Emergence Arts Presents a celebration of one of history’s most influential artists, musicians, and political activists who blended cultural styles to present something fresh & exciting to the entire world in order to be heard. Happy Bornday to Fela Kuti, Pioneer of Afrobeat!

Let’s Celebrate Together and raise our pints at Endless Life Brewing Saturday 10/15/22.

From The Beatles to The Talking Heads, Bowie to Zappa, Fela Kuti paved a path for his Nigerian roots to make its way into our daily playlists and remind us we are all connected thru the beat of the drums. 🪘 Music heals. Art heals. We’re all connected.

We have a lot of healing to do, let’s celebrate life and pave the way for a loving, accepting and healthy future. ♥️ #ArtHEALS #CommUNITY

Festivities kick off at 6 PM with West African influenced drumming with Nathan Bunce, Artist.

7 PM Open Mic Poetry & Expression with Rescue Poetix, Poet Laurette of Jersey City.

Drink n Draw all night (limited supplies provided and feel free to BYO).  21+ to drink, supervised kids & pups welcome. Alcohol-Free (AF) options available (always – zero judgement – safe zone).

Spirit In Motion + GrandMa’s Hands Soap & Specialties will be selling their artisan gifts just in time for the holidays.
