King Ayisoba to play at Alliance Française

He has not been active in recent times but come Saturday, May 24, King Ayisoba will perform at the Alliance Francaise in Accra.

That will be his first major show in Ghana on his return from a performance tour in Europe. The Kologo virtuoso is expected to excite fans with his new compositions on the night.

The performance, which is titled Uncolonized, promises to be an evening of energy, expression, confrontation and education to ignite senses. It will feature original graphic art onstage to add visual punch to the music.

The Nigerian Afro-fusion band, Villy and the Xtreme Volumes, and Ofie Kodjoe from Ghana, will also be in full action on the day.

Music from Villy and the Xtreme Volumes has been variously described as progressive, energetic and thought-provoking.

It is actually a stomping fusion of traditional Afro-beat, highlife, Afro-folk, soul and rock that ask poignant questions of African leaders and confront the continent’s present issues head-on.

Singer, Ofie Kodjoe, has been busy of late and will prove once again why she has been so much in demand to perform in recent years. She will offer some tracks from her upcoming album.

Institut Français (Ghana) and Alliance Française in Accra are sponsoring the Uncolonized concert.
