Afro Soca Jam, one of the latest monthly entertainment events to be established in the Corporate Area, debuted earlier this month to a packed crowd of Afrobeats music lovers who danced all night long.

The event, which debuted on February 5, returns on March 5 with hopes of continuing to set a new standard for the city’s nightlife.

Afro Soca Jam has curated an exceptional lineup featuring some of the best DJs in the business, with headliner and Grammy-nominated producer and DJ, Kurt Riley, leading the way.

Joining Riley on the decks will be DJ Lank of Code Red, fresh from the Trinidad and Tobago Carnival, DJ Lantern MD, and Heatwave Fatalic Sound, with each DJ bringing their unique sound to the event.

“DJ Kurt Riley is an expert in Afrobeats, Soca, and Amapiano, and patrons can expect a musical treat. With an extensive background in the music industry and a dedication to delivering the best beats to his fans, Riley is guaranteed to bring the house down,” said IB Konteh of Afro Soca Jam.
