After the 25th year of Africa Oyé was a resounding success, the organisation celebrating the African diaspora join us on the radio for the next 12 months.
With a mixture of live recordings from this 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 an interview with Africa Oyé Creative Director, Paul Duhaney, who speaks about where it all began. There is also a mix by No Fakin’s Paddy Quinn recorded live at this year’s festival, as well as a live session with this year’s Emerging Artists, Anwar Ali and Dave Owen, who brought their guitar and oud to the studio for a chat.
