Re: African Festival


Too sad this festival isn't booking my musical brother Nigeria's Majek Fashek !!

Majek Fashek influences are of Bob Marley,Peter Tosh,Fela Anikulapo Kuti and Jimi Hendrix. He seamlessly meshes roots,rock,reggae and Afrobeat into a unique signature sound called "Kpangolo".Majek describes it as “the sound of many cultures coming together.”

His debut solo album Prisoner Of Conscience,released in 1988,sold more than 200,000 copies in Nigeria alone.It was followed by "Spirit of Love" a year later, produced by the inestimable Little Steven.The Best of Majek Fashek was released in the UK in 1994,incorporating much of Majek’s classic African material,and in 1997 Rainmaker was released on Tuff Gong International.

Majek had a close relationship with the legendary late Nigerian musician and bandleader Fela Kuti.


& One Love zämä!

Re: African Festival

Afro-Pfingston, which is celebrated in the old town of Winterthur over this weekend (Pfingston) each year, is great. If you get a chance go along tonight to hear the music, or tomorrow to the market at the sound of the beat ... I was there yesterday and it was really loads of fun.
