Africa Oyé (December ’18)

Paul Duhaney & DJ Mayeva



Following yet another successful and unforgettable event celebrating the diaspora of African music in Sefton park, Africa Oyé is back on Melodic Distraction Radio…

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 Paul sits down with James Zaremba as Spy takes a short break. Join them for the first hour as they take a whistle stop tour of the South American and Caribbean diaspora. In the second hour, DJ Mayeva plays a combination of afro-beats, soca and baile-funk at this year’s Africa Oye festival.
