By showcasing African music and fashion in a different light, Madaraka hopes to change the narrative of stereotypes held on these topics. The festival will also feature the premiere of Madaraka The Documentary, a powerful short film about empowering our communities through the arts and entrepreneurship.

All proceeds go directly to One Vibe Africa and youth in Kisumu, Kenya. Hosted by Njuguna Gichuru, with performances from Rocky Dawuni, Meklit Hadero, Dynamq, Chimurenga Renaissance,Otieno Terry, The Pyramid Band & Big World Breaks.
