MEET THE FINALISTS
2020 was a historic year for the Go-Go community, triumphs associated with the “Go-Go Official Music of the District of Columbia Designation Act of 2019” and the new status as the Official Music of D.C. However, the COVID-19 Pandemic brought new challenges and opportunities; as venues closed, we went to our screens to enjoy virtual concerts. New bands started, music was produced, videos were shot–––THE BEAT KEPT GOING. This year we celebrate our pulse, our city, our culture. GO-GO FOREVER.
THE GO-GO MUSEUM AND CAFÉ
OUR MISSION is to document, preserve, and innovate Go-Go music, whose polyrhythms have roots in West Africa. We connect this sound to its diasporic roots through our exhibitions, programs, and partnerships and create opportunities for international collaborations.
Nominations and categories are determined by the ten-person awards committee. Winners are determined by public vote and the weighted vote of the ten-person awards committee. The committee is comprised of diverse stakeholders in the Go-Go Community.
