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.

This month, the Oyé team take a dive back into the 2018 festival with two guest mixes from Dharma Collective and Dub Defenders. Dharma throwing things down for the first hour with music from across the African diaspora and Dub Defenders with earth rattling reggae dub for the second half.
