BLACKSOUND COSTA ADEJE 2023 is a festival featuring several internationally renowned artists such as Ingrid Arthur, Clarence Bekker, Genesis de Jesus, or Liz Jai, accompanied by excellent local artists such as Hector Artiles, Ezequiel Barrios, and Renata.
The event will feature two evenings where the great musical talent in the Canary Islands will be combined with a passion for Afro music, the influence of other cultures, and the participation of great international artists who promote this genre and sound. Through local artists, we will be exposed to rhythms that, although not foreign, come from other lands and roots.
This will be the fourth edition of BLACKSOUND ADEJE, which has brought together Afro music and its fusion with other genres such as gospel, bolero, funk, R&B, soul, and blues.
For this new edition in 2023, we will see how Afro music has influenced the European continent, with the United Kingdom being one of the main strategic points for this genre. Many people and artists from the Caribbean islands, different countries in Africa, and the rest of America have arrived in London, which has become one of the epicenters of Afro music. Therefore, most of the artists for this occasion will be from the UK, renowned for their great musical career in theaters, concerts, and musicals.
BLACKSOUND COSTA ADEJE 2023 will be the center of the great successes of Afro music in September.
