On February 21st 2015 in the JBL Theatre at EMP Museum, One Vibe Africa USA & EMP Museum presented, Black Collaboration—a night of music video premiers & uplifting conversations about the power of creative partnerships between Africans and African-Americans in Seattle.
Black Collaboration continues to:
- Inspire collaboration between Africans and African-Americans. Owuor Arunga, Anthony Tackett, Atuanya Priester, Meg Stacker, Infinite Milam, Wael Abou-zaki and other Seattle based musicians, innovators, and entrepreneurs have traveled to Kenya as part of Piga Picha Project, and other One Vibe facilitated projects with their counterparts in Kenya.
- Showcase African culture. Madaraka was dubbed the best African oriented concert by Northwest Music Scene, “a premier African-influenced festival” by YES Magazine, and “globally oriented event” by Humanosphere.
he other purpose of Black Collaboration is for One Vibe Africa – USA to participate in Black History Month by helping ignite a deeper conversation between Africans and African-Americans in Seattle to enhance creativity, and idea sharing.
