New Orleans, LA (August 22, 2016) - With the overwhelming success of Ms. Lauryn Hill's inaugural Diaspora Calling! at Brooklyn's historic Kings Theater, she has announced the MLH Caravan: A Diaspora Calling! Concert Series. The tour, presented by Ms. Hill, in association with Live Nation and global music and entertainment platform, Tidal, will be kicking off August 27th in Philadelphia, PA and running through November, stopping in Chicago, Toronto, New Orleans, and many more cities along the way.

The concert series will bring aspects of the inaugural festival to the road. Each show will include special guest performances by artists from throughout the African diaspora. Of the concert series Ms. Hill says: "The MLH Caravan allows me to continue the theme of unity and celebration of the many facets of cultural and artistic beauty throughout the African diaspora while on tour this summer and fall. In these days of tension, tumult and transition, an exchange of this kind can yield direction, expression, understanding and empowerment as well as connection, self-Love and appreciation that hopefully overflows into our respective communities."
