Africa Oyé

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.

After announcing their headliners for 2023, which sees dancehall and reggae artist, Tanya Stephens close proceedings, whilst the Sunday will be headlined by Seun Kuti – son of the legendary afrobeat star, Fela Kuti – with his band, Egypt 80, Paul’s back to take us through all things Oyé!
