African Endless Summer Series @Sankofa (Washington DC)

I am so excited because summer, this year, is going to be amazing!

Sonic Diaspora is warming things proppah with their African Endless Summer Series at Sankofa Cafe (2714 Georgia Avenue NW, Washington DC). It’s be amazing outdoor day parties every sunday from 1-8pm.

I can personally vouch for every sound booked to play each weekend. Pure class, pure crispness from end to end.

Oh, and I happen to be playing on August 4th, no biggie ;-)
