Introducing Afro soul
The rich diversity of music and language found in Africa is often pushed to the background.
For this reason, Afro soul has been introduced into the mix of our poetry and open-mic evenings. With the Afto soul band Aziza setting the pace with their acoustic inspired Swahili lyrics.
Get ready for a serving of smooth ear candy with Afrosoul and Neosoul music from the DJs booth. For a sampling on what will be playing through the speakers check out http://www.myspace.com/ayo.
