Alsarah and the Nubatones

In partnership with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and the National Geographic Society, join us on June 20, 2019 in Washington, DC as we pay tribute to the millions of refugees and forcibly displaced people around the world and the communities that welcome them with a special program on the Millennium Stage.

5:15 pm – 6:00 pm: A conversation with National Geographic Photo Camp refugee youth participants sharing stories of resilience, hope for their futures and connections to their new communities. With remarks from UNHCR and the National Geographic Society.

6:00 pm – 7:00 pm: A live performance by Alsarah & the Nubatones, an internationally acclaimed Brooklyn-based group with an authentic sound: ‘East – African retro-pop’. Their music features refugee themes including songs of displacement and returning home, as well as the cultural influences of Sudan and Egypt. With a diverse global audience, the Nubatones have proven over and over that soul crosses all cultural and linguistic barriers.

This event is free and open to the public. Learn more about the event and RSVP on Facebook to let us know you’ll be there.
