Afro-Flow Tour Partners With Cancer Society For Nationwide Tour

 SEE VIDEO HERE

 Washington, D.C. - Independent recording artist Michael “MIKE-E” Ellison is set to embark on the 4th nationwide AfroFlow Tour in partnership with the American Cancer Society. The first performance will be on March 23, with an appearance at Prairie View A&M University, Prairie View, Texas.  After Prairie View, MIKE-E and the members of the AfroFlow Tour group -- vocalist Kenny Watson, DJ Invisible, African percussionist Sowandé Keita, and Senegalese bassist and singer Pathé Jassi -- will perform from March to June in twenty-four cities across the nation.  The Tour’s final performance will be at the Juneteenth Celebration concert on June 19 in Des Moines, IA.

 

The Ethiopian-born MIKE-E developed the musical concept AfroFlow (flowing from Africa), which recognizes the uplifting indigenous roots of Hip-hop, Soul, R & B, Blues, Rock and other forms of music. The Tour’s innovative and captivating performances have a powerful interactive component.  “We don’t perform for anybody. We perform with everybody,” MIKE-E explains. Moreover, the band tailors their performances to each audience, transcending age, race, gender and ethnicity. It is not uncommon to see three generations of one family in the audience or onstage interacting with the crew.

 

The American Cancer Society sponsors the AfroFlow Tour to promote cancer awareness, tobacco prevention, and cessation.  The AfroFlow Tour is also supported by urban clothier Pelle Pelle. “We greatly appreciate the American Cancer Society’s sponsorship and Pelle Pelle’s support,” said MIKE-E.  “We’ve enjoyed the opportunity to meet and perform with wonderful people (cancer survivors, volunteers, and dedicated staff) throughout the country and we are looking forward to our 2010 AfroFlow Tour,” he added.

 

MIKE-E maintains recognition throughout Ethiopia with one of the country’s most popular hits Ethiopia (Everything Will Be Alright),” where he also supports orphan outreach and health care programs.  Ethiopiais featured on MIKE-E’s first CD, AFROFLOW and the band will introduce AFROFLOW II during this year’s Tour.
