Local Soca star Machel Montano has been included in the line-up for "Diaspora Calling." The show has been put together by singer Lauryn Hill and is a celebration of the African Diaspora.
Diaspora Calling, she explains, is a collection of works “intended to celebrate the rich tapestry of artists from the African diaspora while also illumining persistent and irrepressible themes."
The show was launched in Brooklyn and features a three-day series of both art and music.
Hill’s sold out headline concert at the venue this Friday (April 15) will also feature performances from Trinidad and Tobago's Machel Montano, Jamaica's Stephen 'Ragga' Marley , as well as African artists Wondaboy, JoJo Abot and Mr. Eazi.
