Oye

The first few acts for Liverpool’s Africa Oyé free festival were announced recently, and it’s looking pretty strong already. They are Mokoomba (Zimbabwe) Zong Zing Allstars (DR Congo) and Atongo Zimba (Ghana).

The festival is held on the 22nd and 23rd of June and will celebrate its 21st anniversary this year. As well as music there’ll be workshops in African and Caribbean dance and drumming, capoeira performances, holistic therapies and more.
