African Music Nites Anniversary Celebration Feb 19th at Waid’s

Come celebrate with us February 19!
During Black History month, we honor and celebrate the African goddess Oya. It’s been over a year since Hidmo closed and we began co-producing the African Music Nites, now at Waid’s Haitian Cuisine and Lounge. To celebrate our anniversary, we are offering free African dance workshops in the afternoon, and a gala evening show with two bands, all sponsored by a Smart Ventures grant from the City of Seattle. Come out and dance during President’s Day Weekend!
