“Go-go bands have been playing African rhythms for decades. Now Backyard Band and Team Familiar are taking the beat back to their ancestral homeland in Africa.” ALONA WARTOFSKY, Washington City Paper , 2018
Feb. 26 - Mar. 5, 2018 The Backyard Band journeyed from Washington, DC to Ghana, West Africa for a tour and documentary film entitled Back2Africa . Curated by The Adinkra Group in partnership with the Ghana Tourism Authority , South African Airways and AfricanAncestry.com.
The film documentary was professional operation shot in 4K with professional sound teams directed by J, Kevin Swain.
We already have invested $75k+ in this project but we need your help to finish connecting the dots. HELP us produce the story of Go-Go’s connection to Africa, the importance of the music and its social impact on our community.
For those who will not get the chance to experience this tour first hand, the documentary will capture this compelling story for the world to see.
Thank you in advance for your support.
