Opening Concert with Newen Afrobeat (Chile) July 12th 8pm The Museum $35 per ticket.
A chance to be up close and personal with Kultrún's Headliner. Beer by TWB. Food available. Super band to dance to and a great way to meet some of the other artists taking part in the festival. Newen Afrobeat's roots were formed in Chile. The inspiration comes from the pioneer of Afrobeat, Nigerian born, Fela Kuti. Although their native roots also influence their music, their repertoire includes some of Kuti's titles. Newen's lyrics carry social messages supporting the Mapuche cause, inviting listeners to transcend the limits of modern society.
