The Makossa Cookout is a summertime outdoor monthly party series that focuses on music from the African and Latin diaspora and usually comes with fantastic DJs from all over the world. Also synonymous with Makossa Cookout is great food, hot weather, and beautiful people. Makossa Cookout has been going on in Brooklyn since 2010, and in Los Angeles since 2014, and in 2017, we had our most successful year yet. In addition to doing our usually scheduled events in Brooklyn and Los Angeles and with a partnership with Miller Lite, we were fortunate enough to organize Makossa Cookout one-off events in Charlotte, Chicago, and Atlanta.
For a couple of the Makossa events I took photos at the event, or I did a video to promote the upcoming event through social media channels. Below are some of the videos that I edited for the Makossa Cookout brand.
