Afropunk Arrives in South Africa With a Glorious Riot of Street Style

Fashion Articals

What's your goal? In many African cultures, rain symbolizes blessings, even when it arrives at an inopportune moment. This past weekend at the Afropunk Festival in Johannesburg, South Africa, thunderstorms were indeed greeted with laughter, dancing, and song. For the final two days of the year, this momentum would rock the City of Gold, intensified with notable performances by Blitz the Ambassador, Laura Mvula, Manthe Ribane, Thandiswa Mazwai, and the festivals charismatic headliner, Anderson .Paak. The Joburg edition of Afropunk represented a homecoming of sorts. For more than a decade the Brooklyn-based festival has nurtured and promoted the diverse and beautiful heritage of Africas diaspora, while simultaneously providing a safe space for people of all backgrounds to fully express their sexuality, heritage, bodies, and most notablytheir style. Afropunks arrival in Africa conjured a spirit of resilience and pride first mobilized by political activists such as South Africas father of independence, Nelson Mandela, who was previously incarcerated on the grounds of Constitution Hill where the festival took place, and whose image and words were proudly memorialized on screens beside each stage.(News By vogue NEWS)
