Alive After Five Season Finale: Afrosonics 

When: Wed., Aug. 31, 5 p.m. 2016
Price: FREE

Boise audiences have experienced Afrosonics' blend of South American, Caribbean, blues, rock and funk at Treefort Music Fest, World Refugee Day, Art in the Park, the Boise 150 celebration, Hyde Park Street Fair and who knows how many other events.

To call their sound "world music" is literally accurate—led by Dayo "Ariwo" Ayodele, of Nigeria, band members hail from as far as Congo Brazzaville and Surinam, and as near as California and Boise—but the label doesn't quite do them justice. With such a robust blend of influences and styles, Afrosonics taps into a universal culture that transcends national borders or traditions.

Fitting, then, that the band should close out the 2016 Alive After Five series, which has brought together tens of thousands of revelers to mingle in a shared appreciation of music and community.
