This past May, our friends over at The Drake Hotel hosted Afrobeats Pop Up + Party, put together by SUPAFRIK, uniquely blending urban sounds with Ghanaian azonto, Angolan kuduro, South African house and more.
The video captures a woman flawlessly wrapping her hair while simultaneously dancing, all without missing a beat.
Can we all take a moment to appreciate the lady in red who rewrapped her hair mid-dance? pic.twitter.com/FvVsjEx94n

This happened in Toronto, over at The Drake’s very own Sky Yard.
The video went viral, racking up over 8000 retweets and over 9000 likes in a short span of time.
And now you have your chance to experience it with us!
Harbourfront Centre has partnered with SUPAFRIK + Shaman to bring GUMBO to us on July 9 – an Afrobeats party that mixes soca, dancehall, samba, baile funk, afro-house and other genres from around the world. It’s an absolute can’t-miss event.
GUMBO serves as the official after-party for Future Routes, the festival that brings together artists and performers from around the globe to forge new paths and smash stereotypes while drawing on traditional roots music to create bold and far-out sounds.
