About Amisny

The African Music International Society of New York [AMISNY] is a not-for-profit (c)(3) organization formed to nurture and stimulate African music in New York, and to educate and provide meaningful programming and experiences to New Yorkers and visitors. Our mission is divided in two main goals.

First, we plan on being the premiere source for African music appreciation, education, enrichment, and entertainment presentation in New York. Second, we plan to make African music as accessible as possible to new audiences, reduce the production costs, and provide African musicians more performance opportunities in New York.


There is no organization that provides the quality African arts education, entertainment and emphasis that Amisny provides to New Yorkers and visitors. With our singular focus on Africa, our vision is to inculcate African music into the Big Apple’s social fabric by offer constantly evolving programming, with an emphasis on modern African music.


Amisny asserts that it is essential that the different African cultures have a noticeable presence and be adequately represented in New York’s vibrant art scene because the city of New York is an important center for music, visuals arts, dance and theater, and is a major center of the global art market. Music and Rhythm, in their countless variations, are a central part of African culture so there is a vast catalogue of works to be presented.
