Juneteenth, also known as Juneteenth Independence Day or Freedom Day, is an American holiday that commemorates the June 19, 1865, announcement of the abolition of slavery in the United States. Its name is a portmanteau of 'June' and 'nineteenth', and is recognized as a holiday or special day of observance in 45 states. With his new single, Afriqua (aka Adam Longman Parker) sheds light on this overlooked holiday through a unique musical lens through his latest single 'Jumpteenth'.  An African-American artist living in Berlin, Parker seeks to challenge the idea that electronic music is a European phenomenon. As a Virginian, he contradicts the assumption that all Black electronic musicians hail from Detroit, Chicago, or New York.
