Nas and Damian Marley

Nas and Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley are taking their Africa-inspired album across the world on the “Distant Relatives Tour,” set to kick off May 21 in Arcata, Calif.

The rap and reggae stars will perform material from their joint album, Distant Relatives, at venues and festivals throughout the U.S. and Europe, including stops at Bonnaroo on June 11 and Gathering of the Vibes on August 1. Prior to the tour kick-off, they will appear at South Florida’s SunFest music and art festival on May 2.

Opening for the duo during their globe-spanning trek is Nigerian-born singer-songwriter Nneka, who released her U.S. debut, Concrete Jungle, earlier this year.
