As one of South Florida’s longest-running music festivals, the annual Afro Roots World Music Festival celebrates the evolution of African culture by featuring some of the best performers from all over the Caribbean, the Americas and Africa. Past events have featured panels and workshops. The festival is made possible by the generous underwriting of Knight Foundation, the Funding Arts Network, and the Miami-Dade Department of Cultural Affairs.
