Hello Imani,

Summer 2015 is about to pass into the history books, and what a great summer it was! We especially enjoyed meeting music fans at SummerStage and Celebrate Brooklyn. We hope you're enjoying our e-Newsletter and checking out some of the concerts we recommend. Kudos to the staffs of SummerStage and Celebrate Brooklyn for another stellar season.

On air this week is "Dread Inna Inglan: How the U.K. Took to Reggae" Featured are interviews with David Hinds of Steel Pulse, Dennis Bovell, Papa Levi and other leaders in the U.K. scene.  Produced by Saxon Baird.

Great news! If you're in the SF Bay Area, check out our special "San Francisco: Afropop By the Bay," airing on KALW 91.7 FM on Labor Day, Mon., Sept. 7. It's a deep dive into the unique story of artists from Nigeria, Ghana and South Africa, creating the first urban American-African music scene. Tell your Bay Area friends!

We have openings for internships at Afropop for fall 2015 and winter/spring 2016. Interest areas include music journalism, social media, development and general nonprofit management. We offer a stimulating environment in a unique cross-cultural media organization that will definitely add something distinctive to your resume.

For New Yorkers, if it's Labor Day, it's time for the annual West Indian Carnival parade in Brooklyn. See our post for the many related shows, contests, etc. throughout the weekend.

Samba New York is putting on one of its fun fun fun Samba Parties this Sat., Sept. 5 at DROM. Fanfarai, the boisterous North African-French brass band makes its North American debut this month.
