We had a crazy night at Okayafrica's AfrobeatXAfrobeats concert at Lincoln Center Out-of-Doors series at Damrosch Park, doing a set of our own and then collaborating on a few songs with Nigerian pop sensation Davido. Here are some of our favorite pics from the audience:

The crowd was live! Thanks to @arielsutra for this.

"A griot (/ˈɡri.oʊ/; French pronunciation: [ɡʁi.o]), jali or jeli (djeli or djéli in French spelling) is a West African historian, storyteller, praise singer, poet and/or musician. The griot is a repository of oral tradition and is often seen as a societal leader due to his traditional position as an advisor to royal personages." @antibalas @okayafrica . #igdc #newyork #nyc #ig_nycity #newyork_ig #Saidawiseafrican #thecreatorclass #jbsankara #usaprimeshot #sonya7s #theamericancollective #shootermag #agameoftones #bythings #neverstopexploring #welivetoexplore #passionpassport #artofvisuals #neverstopexploring #portraits #sonyimages #sonyalpha #makeportraitsnotwar #igers #photooftheday #quoteoftheday #justgoshoot #createcommune #heatercentral #washingtondaily #acreativedc
