Afrobeta Headlines North Beach Social on April 20

This Thursday, April 20 at 8 pm join the Jitney at the Miami Beach Bandshell for the North Beach Social featuring the music of Afrobeta. The Jitney will have a table selling all our  books. For more details on the free event click here.

The electro-pop act Afrobeta who will be the night’s main attraction and soundtrack. They are made up of the married couple of Cristina “Cuci” Amador and Tony Smurphio.

Afrobeta have had a steady live presence since starting in Miami in 2006. They’ve played any venue you can think of throughout South Florida. They’ve jammed everywhere from O Miami’s Poetry in Pajamas at Miami Beach Botanical Gardens, to Piano Slam at the Arsht Center.

This writer spoke to Afrobeta a few years ago during COVID for Miami New Times.  That year’s North Beach Social had to be streamed rather than live, and Amador expressed how much she preferred playing for a live audience, “Not being able to interact with the audience will be different. You won’t see anybody dancing.” She looked for a bright spot by adding,  “But you also won’t see anyone leaving to go to the bathroom. I’ve been thinking about what I can do differently for this.”

It has been a few years since Afrobeta released their last album Illusion Motel back in 2020. But you can check out what their live show is like right here with the below recording of that 2020 livestream.
