Join SocietyHAE.com for a multimedia presentation on social media and music in Africa and how both are helping to re-shape and re-define the continent.

Often when one thinks of Africa the images that come to mind are that of poverty, civil unrest, AIDS and corruption. There are however a new cadre of young artists that are re-defining Africa and challenging the public’s perception of Africa and its people. Through music and social media African artists are connecting with people beyond their countries borders and providing them with a glimpse of life in Africa and introducing the world first had to the creative mind and spirit of the people. This shift has major implications for artists, the music industry and brands who are looking to expand into new markets and find creative ways to engage their audiences.

“This Is Africa… How Music and Social Media Are Re-defining A Continent” will look at how Africans are using social media to market their music and connect with the world. The panel will also introduce attendees to Africa’s rising music talent via a multimedia presentation. Finally the event will close with a DJ set and performance by African Artists.

Okay, let’s be honest. the Superbowl has
become an unofficial holiday every year in February. Folks tend to think of it
as "
the New Year’s Eve of sports!" And rightfully so,
cause even if you’re not a fan of any of the teams attending, or even the
sport! You are more than likely to gather with a group of friends to watch it
along with the rest of the WORLD! I say all this to announce that WE’RE HAVING
A HUGE
SUPERBOWL PARTY! Last year surprisingly even to
us,
the Block Association along w/ Detailed
Events NYC
had over 250+ ppl. attend our very first "My Uber
Sunday Superbowl Party!
" It’s now safe to say it was a HUGE
success! But this year we’re looking to make this one even not just bigger
& better, but BOLDER! Please join us
Superbowl Sunday to help
make this more "
UBER" than the last!
