On December 26th, SuperGroup, Party Noire, Harold Washington Cultural Center, M.A.D.D. Rhythms and Church on the 9 will be collaborating to bring y’all ZAWADI, the annual and official #Kwanzaa2016 Open Mic.
Now. Because this is the 50th Anniversary, and because 2016 has been a year pulled straight from the depths of a white american horror story, we decided to do something special for you folks.
Featuring spoken word legends Adam Ness and Ayinde Cartman, as well as the ear-gasmic, party rockin’, beat knockin sounds of DJ Rae Chardonnay, and hosted by Chicago’s very own Lawrence Binkey Tolefree (deported from Thailand for one night only!), this is a night going down in Chi’celand History.
Take a second to appreciate the sheer audacity of that BOMB A**, BLACK A** LINE-UP. Honestly, I don’t know where else you’ll be on a random Monday evening besides here. From 6 to 9 at the Harold Washington Cultural Center. Come get this work.
Come enjoy a weekend of tap classes at all levels while exploring the rich history of this truly american art form. Top notch tap artists, a scrumptious jazz/tap brunch and jam and a dynamic Saturday night performance round out the weekend. It’s all set in the beautiful city of New Orleans – the birthplace of Jazz!
Don’t miss it!
