Sankofa Concert -Legends of Funk Jazz and Soul

April 27 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm


The 5th Sankofa Concert taking place April 27th (two shows) features musical artists Lili Forbes, Kendra Foster, and Cody ChesnuTT.

The Tallahassee St.Maarten Foundation will be celebrating 25 years of its Sister City relationship with Tallahassee. This is also Tallahassee-Leon County’s Bicentennial Year, and we thought it would be fitting to kick off our 25-year celebration by honoring the local and international legends of Funk, Jazz and Soul during our 5th Sankofa concert on Saturday April 27, 7 pm. We are featuring and celebrating the music of local legends and educators who have contributed to music and education locally and around the world. These artists represent the highest standard and love for the art of music, dedicating their lives to enriching others through the arts, education and culture. The Sankofa Concert is an educational but entertaining event that showcases and educates the community about the various forms of musical and artistic expressions performed by musicians and singers of the African Diaspora. Appearing on stage at the 5th Sankofa Concert will be Grammy Award Winning singer/songwriter Kendra Foster; singer/songwriter Cody ChesnuTT; Caribbean Gospel Music Award winners Ilismo & Lili Forbes; highly acclaimed singer, songwriter, and producer Anthony Williams; and Drummer on the Move, Marlon Williams. Also appearing will be Larry Malloy, Jordan Just, Nia Sissle and TheSoulCollectiveLive. Featured musicians are Joel Johnson, Sam Johnson, Joshua Rivers, Jordan Green, Steve Fryson, Michelle Waller, and many more.
