Africa Oye 2011 photography from one of best festivals in the UK

Published on Tue Jun 21, 2011 by

Africa Oye is the UK's biggest free African music festival and proved again to be a massive success with 30 000 plus people visiting. The sun was shining for most of the weekend and the artists were absolutely brilliant. Highlights for me were an amazing singer from Mali called Fatoumata Diawara and the Gangbe Brass Band from Benin. Headliner Martha Griffiths stole the show though with a brilliant set on Saturday night.
