Africa Oyé (February ’20)

Spykatcha and Paul Duhaney with Truth & Lies

The 26th Africa Oyé has now sadly passed, but with that comes another full year of radio shows. Celebrating the African diaspora through anecdotes and unheard stage recordings, join Paul Duhaney and his guests each month.

With a blend of recordings from the festival, interviews with artists and organisers, and plenty of guest mixes and live sessions along the way, the show is a reflection on what has happened and what’s to come in the future. Oyé prides itself on being the largest celebration of African music in the UK, beginning life as a programme of live events in venues throughout Liverpool.

This month’s show features Spykatcha and Paul back in the driving seat, talking local gigs and all things Oyé. Plus, we hand over to a mix from the festival from Truth & Lies.
