College of Western Idaho’s (CWI) Connections Project is proud to welcome back local Afro-Indie band, Afrosonics, after a dynamic performance last year. The band’s music primarily incorporates African, traditional, and contemporary styles; combining reggae, funk, and Latin themes. Their contagious energy and captivating stage presence made a great impression on last year’s attendees; drawing in a crowd of students, faculty, and community members all dancing without inhibition.
Bass player, Jacob Fredrickson, is a current student at CWI studying Media Arts. He has played with Afrosonics for nearly three and half years.
“The Connections Project is a perfect synthesis of how the music of Afrosonics works in harmony with the local community,” said Fredrickson.
The Connections Project is free and open to the public. This year it is being held on April 25 at the Nampa Campus Academic Building from 3 – 8 p.m. with live music provided by Afrosonics during the social hour from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m.
