No Signal: After Hours

Saturday 11 September 2021

Dance with us as we celebrate the best music out of Africa in the last 50 years.

In collaboration with No Signal, the radio station celebrating Black British culture and communities, we bring you After Hours. We will kick-off the night with Yaaba Funk, a 21st Century Hi-Life Afro Funk band from Brixton. Fronted by vocalists Richmond Kessie and Helen McDonald, they promise hard-hitting Afro drums and percussion, tight horns and guitars for a contemporary Hi-life twist. The night will close with DJ sets from DJ Tone (Worldwide FM) and champions of No Signal’s The Sankofa Show, DJ DNA and DJ Scyther.

 

Each DJ will play a set responding to some of James Barnor’s favourite songs, including Hi-life highflyers King Bruce, The Black Beats, E. T. Mensah, and South African sensation, Master KG amongst others. Expect Afro beat and Afrobeats, Ampiano and Hip Life.
