The festival, which runs July 2-5 in Commodore Barry Park, will also feature famed jazz musician Norman Connors, vocalist Kaissa, Bronx-born singer Cita Rodriguez and reggae artists New Kingston.
Unlike the park's other concert series, Afropunk Fest — which announced it would be charging a hefty admission fee for the first time ever this year — organizers of the African Arts fest only ask for a donation of $5 for adults and $2 for children.
The IAAF, founded in 1971 in Bedford-Stuyvesant, attracts 75,000 attendees annually, according to organizers, and boasts a vendor market with more than 100 entrepreneurs selling jewelry, urban fashions, body oils, African fabric, original paintings and more.
There is also an outdoor food court serving traditional soul food, Caribbean dishes and African, Latin, vegetarian, seafood and raw food options.
"Since 1971, IAAF has been highly respected for bringing to Brooklyn world class performers from the African Diaspora, including from the United States, the Caribbean, Latin America, and the continent itself," organizers said of the event.
The festival takes place from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, rain or shine.
