Congo Square ATX w/ Kiko Villamizar, Roland & the Roots Riddim, Bramaya West African Drum & Dance, & more

Wynton Marsalis once said, “Every strand of American music comes directly from Congo Square.” The plaza became the heart of black New Orleans as early as the 18th century, when enslaved people gathered at the public market on Sundays to dance and keep African musical traditions alive. This free, all-day local homage comes headlined by Colombian folksinger Kiko Villamizar and features delights from across the diaspora, including reggae by Roland & the Roots Riddim, Brazilian capoeira, and West African drumming. – Thomas Fawcett
