Africa Oyé presents Nyumbani: Episode 1
Artists from Haiti, Zanzibar, South Africa and the Wirral make up an eclectic line-up for the latest episode of Africa Oyé's new online series, Nyumbani.
This edition of Nyumbani - which takes its name from the Swahili word for 'at home' - will premiere on the Liverpool institution's Facebook and Youtube pages at 7pm on Friday 26th February, with future episodes airing monthly.
The series, which debuted last December, features original concerts, interviews, documentaries and DJ sets from artists across Africa and the Diaspora.
One of the stand-out performers from the most recent festival in Sefton Park - back in 2019 - the Haitian Voodoo Priestess, Moonlight Benjamin, will return to delight the Oyé audience with a never-before-seen set, showcasing her unique take on blues rock.
For those wanting a soundtrack while they get to work in the kitchen, Zanzibari Mim Suleiman will not only be performing songs as part of this episode, but will also be joining host Spykatcha for a special, cook-a-long interview!
Adding some local flavour to proceedings will be the Wirral's own, Tabitha Jade, who will be showcasing her latest single, Intuition, featuring PRIDO, a Manchester-based rapper of Zambian heritage.
The FREE online show - airing on the Africa Oyé Youtube and Facebook pages - will also feature a DJ set from one of most exciting selectors on the South African scene right now, SNO.
Africa Oyé: Nyumbani, Episode 3 will premiere on the Africa Oyé Facebook Page and Youtube Channel at 7pm on Friday 26th February. There is no charge to watch the stream but donations are welcomed via africaoye.com.
