In 2012 Africa Oyé are marking 20 years of bringing the best in African music and culture to
the UK.

Starting out as a series of small gigs in Liverpool’s city centre in 1992, Africa Oyé has gone from strength-to-strength, and has evolved into the foremost celebration of African and Caribbean music and culture in the UK.

Over the past 20 years Africa Oyé has brought some of the biggest names in music from
Africa, the Caribbean and South America to Liverpool, including Tinariwen, Peter Tosh, Femi
Kuti, and of course, last year’s headliner, ‘Queen of Reggae’ Marcia Griffiths.
