Harlem's AfroJam

Whoa and whoa.

I found a posting for a new AfroJam showcase in Harlem and went, by myself, just to see what it was about. I also brought my camera with unsure if I would even be able to use it. Fortunately, there were enough of us there with cameras that I fit right in.

And the MUSIC was killer! Every artist and group was fantastic. I was bowled away the entire time.

I only wish I was closer to Harlem as they've begun doing these events more often.

I will be going back as soon as I am able. Enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.
