The all-female band, Dzesi aka Women of Colour, who have been creating waves in Accra over the past year, will showcase their brand of music which is a curious blend of a variety of rhythms, beats and melodies from different countries.

Balinga and the Feeling Brothers will deliver a mixed bag of compositions from several West African countries, while the Francophone Generation band will dish out a bowl of Francophone music, including soukous, makossa and dombolo.

Soul diva Nana Yaa, who has collaborated with Kojo Antwi a number of times, and R&B star Irene Logan are expected to mesmerize the crowd with soulful music.

Launched in 1982 by the French Ministry for Culture, Fête de la Musique is held in more than one hundred countries in Europe, and several countries all over the world. It allows the expression of all styles of music in a cheerful and peaceful atmosphere.

Fête de la Musique aims at large audiences while working to popularize musical practice for professionals and non-professionals from all social backgrounds.

It also provides an opportunity to communicate and share a very special moment through music. The concert is being sponsored by the Alliance Française and the French Embassy in Accra.
