Afrobeat is a music genre originating in West Africa. Created by Fela Kuti, it fuses traditional Nigerian music, Highlife, along with Jazz, and Funk. Contemporary Afrobeat has grown to include Caribbean and Electro influences. Garnering global rotation, it has recently reached Pop status all over the world.
Passport Vibes started in April 2018 as a way to join the party goers of Chicago together by picking 3 popular DJs from different genres and bringing them together to play to one diverse crowd. Expanding that initial experience, this street festival is an Afrobeats playground. Bringing culture and music to the streets of Hyde Park, a neighborhood that champions World Music, and Community Events. Passport Vibes Afrobeat Street Fest aims to expose more people to the genre, while giving lovers of Afrobeat & African music a fun filled environment to groove.
