Electric Root Festival

A Celebration of Black Arts Music and Culture.

Make plans to join Mwenso & The Shakes as we take over the front yard of Hall Auditorium in April. Bringing together campus and community the one day festival will be headlined by an in concert, reimagined, Afrofuturist version of the beloved Rodgers and Hammerstein musical “The Sound of Music”. This exciting new work first premiered in the  summer of 2021 at Bard College Summerscapes and will spread love and music across Oxford
