Lauryn Hill Launches Her Own Music Festival, Diaspora Calling!

Lauryn Hill has partnered with TIDAL X to bring music lovers a music festival called Diaspora Calling!, a three-day Brooklyn music and art festival that began yesterday and will run until tomorrow (April 15).

According to a statement, the festival is designed to celebrate artists from the African diaspora.  “Even if we work independently, we are a resounding collective voice, both reconciling and embracing our relationship to history, our origins, our future and to ourselves,” Hill said in the press release.

Yesterday, the festival kicked off with an art gallery showcase put together by Hill and filled with music by DJ Spinna and DJ Juls. The gallery is open to the public from 12-4 p.m. today (4/14) and tomorrow (4/15).

Tomorrow, Hill will take the stage as the headliner, while Stephen “Ragga” Marley, Mr. Eazi, Wondaboy, Machel Montano, and Stonebwoy will accompany her for additional performances.

Not in NY? Don’t worry, the music portion of Diaspora Calling! will be livestreamed on TIDAL for both members and non-members.
