The free event takes place in Smithfield Square on Sunday, July 29th from 3pm-8pm. Now in its 5th year, Hotter than July features a packed programme of feel-good rhythms and vibrant performances from samba ensemble Morro 16, Leafzang dueo, Notify, all female Aro-Brazilian percussion orchestra Zalindé, Billy Konaté, Fehdah, Toot Suite and the Shadowman.
The annual Big Bang Dance Project will present an extract from Catherine Young's 'It takes a Village' thanks to the support of Creative Ireland - incorporating West African and Palestinian Dabke dance with a group of dancers including asylum seekers from Kerry coming to Dublin to perform.
Ireland's leading multicultural choir Discovery Gospel Choir will also be offering a series of Choral Workshops in advance of Hotter than July.
