Rhythms of Africa, the annual musical odyssey of vibrant African cultures to the Caribbean and the Americas, is set to captivate audiences again! Under the direction of Reggae Ambassador Willie Stewart, this year’s concert is themed “Strength of a Woman,” in alignment with March’s Women’s Month. The show pays homage to female icons from the Caribbean and beyond for their extraordinary contributions to music.

Two exceptional talents headline the event as special appearance guests: internationally acclaimed reggae artist Etana, known fondly as “The Strong One,” and the queen of Barbados social and cultural ambassadorship, Alison Hinds. Special guest appearances will further elevate the evening’s entertainment, including narration by author/social media influencer Kamila McDonald. Adding to the excitement, Kamila’s remarkable 11-year-old vocalist daughter, Kailani Belle, will also grace the stage. The event will also feature an appearance by DWisdom, lead back-up singer to Beres Hammond, adding an extra layer of excitement and diversity to the evening’s festivities.

A heartfelt tribute will be paid to the former leader of Third World, Michael ‘Ibo’ Cooper, by none other than Prilly Hamilton, former Third World lead singer. Additionally, the concert will feature the award-winning musicians and dancers of Rhythms of Africa, alongside the shining stars of Miramar High School students, under the tutelage of Embrace Music Foundation and reggae ambassador Willie Stewart.
Willie Stewart, the renowned drummer and president of the Embrace Music Foundation, expressed his excitement about the involvement of Miramar High School students, who have been participating in a six-week drumming workshop in preparation for the event.

Presented by Embrace Music Foundation, under the patronage of Consul General Oliver Mair, with the support of the City of Miramar and hosted by Mayor Wayne Messam, Rhythms of Africa promises a captivating experience that spotlights iconic female musicians’ resilience, power, grace, and cultural diversity, and the empowering spirit of women through the enchanting medium of music.
