What we're about

Join us! Experience the Fun and Great side of Africa Live in New York City!

African Soul Jam was started by New York-based Afropolitans who felt something lacking in NYC’s nightlife and after-work networking entertainment scene.

We welcome people of various ethnic backgrounds or music taste. We create a fun-filled and safe multicultural atmosphere where you can socialize, eat, connect, dance, mingle and enjoy Afrobeats & the best of Africa's and Caribbean rhythms.

If you like to connect with cool sophisticated, cosmopolitan, international crowd while enjoying the best of Africa's beats and cuisines or you are curious to know more about Africa's entertainment, fashion, lifestyle, culture, how we party and connect! Then you are at the right meetup! African Soul Jam events, where you can socialize, network, unwind or party with good friendly people who have worldly experience and unique styles.

African Soul Jam is NOT a run-of-the-mill club gig. We are passionate about spreading a positive image of Africa continent, the food, the culture, the good people, the fashion while connecting like-minds and having FUN in the process. You’ll be a good fit for our Meetup if you find yourself in at least ONE of the following categories:

*Love culture * Foodie* Want fun & a good time *Equal-opportunity dancer *Energetic and adventurous *Enjoy Global dance vibes or World Music *Like socializing, make friends or network *Spontaneous, open-minded, or well-rounded *Friend of Africa, non-African or African Diaspora *Want to get out of same-old and experience new worldly thing!!

This is more than a party; it is a lifestyle, nice crowd, networking & great music!

See you soon!
