Tonight, don't miss the fabulous FELA! Afterparty and Nubian Dreams at the Desire Lounge! It's part of the Saturday Experience, presented by The FUTURE and sponsored by Svedka Vodka.
Come on out to NYC's famous Greenwich Village, and meet the power players, beautiful people, and A-listers! It's a sneak preview of the upcoming Saturday Experience event series at Desire, brought to you by The FUTURE, the new multimedia experience for and about the gay community.
Tonight's event showcases the Broadway show FELA! and the annual Nubian Dreams Cruise. FELA! celebrates the life and work of socially-conscious composer and musician Fela Kuti, whom James Brown remembered as one of the "originators of funk". Kuti devoted himself to his music, and through this medium raised awareness of his people's plight all overe the world. The Broadway revival of his work is certain to be a hit, and you can get acquainted with the show and its cast tonight!
