Sankofa [San-koh-fah]: Sankofa is an Akan word that means, "We must go back and reclaim our past so we can move forward; so we understand why and how we came to be who we are today." This concept was explored in a film written, directed and produced by Ethiopian-born filmmaker Haile Gerima. A new party in Washington DC premiers on July 11th, 2003. This party focuses on The Roots of Drum & Bass, specifically, the golden era of the mid & late 90s until now. This party will serve as a place to gain knowledge of the development of Drum & Bass and Jungle for innocent ears, as well as a great spot for the educated Drum & Bass massive to hear some of their old favorites and many that they had missed. This party will also provide a forum for local producers to premiere their new tracks on a 8,000 watt EV sound system for a racially and musically diverse audience. Representing the roots of Drum & Bass; Dancehall, HipHop, Jungle, Dub Reaggae, this party will entertain you with balanced and original lineups Every Friday Night.
