The performance of A2VT—Africa to Vermont—is best described in their own words. “We are A2VT: Three young guys from Africa. When war broke out in our home countries, we were forced to leave. Eventually we arrived in Vermont, where we now live. Now that we are here, we want to show people what we can do. We write songs. We sing. We rap. We dance. We have re-corded our first album, “Africa, Vermont” with grant funding from the Vermont Community Foundation. We think you will like what you hear!” A2VT are featured performers at this year’s Burling ton First Night Celebration.
This concert will offer you the opportunity to present the challenging concept of cultural diversity to your students. The positive message of A2VT’s G-Rated lyrics about the cultural differences between Vermont and their lives in Africa is presented to the infectious beat and rhythms of world music.
Location: Fuller Hall, St. Johnsbury Academy, Main Street, St. Johnsbury, VT
