Africa Oyé (October ’18)

Paul Duhaney & Spykatcha with Luke Bolton & E A MOON


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 Duhaney & Spykatcha discuss the influences and relationship of hiphop and African music. They’e brought some of their favourite tracks along to discuss, as well as their excellent chit chat on all things Oyé. The show also features a guest mix from Luke Bolton aka Bolts and E A MOON recorded straight from The Trench Town stage at this year’s festival.
