In association with Move Forward Music, the Lagos-based Palmwine Festival celebrating Nigeria’s nascent alternative music scene returns to Central Park with its good vibes, bright music, and delicious food. Founded by the Nigerian rap duo Show Dem Camp—whose sound is indebted to the Ghanaian genre Highlife, fusing African meter and western jazz melodies—the fest this year features the Cavemen, a Highlife duo comprising the siblings Kingsley Okorie (bass) and Benjamin James (drums). Their latest LP Love and Highlife is a rumination on culture, community, and humanity that features trumpeter Etuk Ubong and Made Kuti, the multi-instrumentalist son of Afrobeats legend Femi Kuti.
