After 2 years, Decadence Entertainment and Waylnn Wolfe will be granting fan wishes with the duo R2Bees performing a one off show at Afro Sounds Concert at London Forum on Saturday, August 15, 2015.
Kentish Town alongside Afropean marvel Mista Silva and the live band phenomenon, the Compozers in the thick of this summer, will also be performing.
R2Bees showcased at SXSW 2015 as well as a sold out American tour refreshingly representing the culture by sonically infusing hip life, a blend of hip-hop and local highlife of live instrumentations and drums heard in their current hits ‘Lobi’, ‘Love’ and ‘Makoma’ (translated my heart).
Already the owner of an Urban Award and MOBO Nominee, Mista Silva has been described as an African fashionista.
With 2015 rapidly becoming his year, Silva also performed at Glastonbury and international festival Roskilde Festival amongst Paul McCartney, Kendrick Lamar & Pharrell Williams.
His ability to perfectly combine today’s contemporary rhythms accompanied with his hybrid of Ghanaian dialect twi and English content on his latest EP ‘Let it off’ which peaked at number 4 in the iTunes Charts, has helped shape the UK Afrobeats scene’s unique sound.
Cementing Afrobeats as a long standing movement the four piece band “The Compozers”, have been playing all over the country during this festival circuit including Wireless Festival and Glastonbury accompanying Anglo-Ghanaian rapper Fuse ODG who has been cracking the top ten so far.
Afro Sounds Concert is an unmissable summer event. Not only is the lineup carefully curated but DJ P Montana who has gained a cult following as the tastemaker of the new generation Afropean Afrobeats artist will be playing on the night.
Saturday 15th August at Forum Kentish Town, Afro Sounds Concert is truly a showcase of the best Afropean & African music has to offer its audience.
A homage to its grass roots with The Compozers conducting the music, a nod to the future in Mista Silva and a celebrations of some its pioneers with R2Bees.
Afro Sounds concert tickets are available on Ticketmaster starting from £20.
