After the 25th year of Africa Oyé was a resounding success, the organisation celebrating the African diaspora join us on the radio in the lead up to the 2018 festival.
With a mixture of live recordings from last year’s festival, interviews with artists and organisers, as well as plenty of guest mixes and live sessions along the way, the Africa Oyé radio show will be a reflection on what has happened and what’s to come in the future. Africa Oyé prides itself on being the largest celebration of African music in the UK. Since beginning life as a programme of live events in venues throughout Liverpool, Africa Oyé has built a loyal following.
This month’s show includes a chat between the creative director, Paul Duhaney, and Stephen Nze, a leading member of the Mandela 8 Group. They’re talking South African artists that are playing at the festival as well as some more information on the Mandela 8 Group, with a guest mix by Bood’n’Bone taken from last year’s festival.
