The unique feature of New York's Afropunk Festival, launched in 2005, is that it attempts to overcome the musical clichés whereby the punk music is "'white" and Afrobeat music dedicated to African-American populations. Through the discovery of artists from different backgrounds, who were able to juggle these two musical cultures, the Afropunk Festival provokes the meeting of cultures and challenges listeners.
