Party to afrobeat and reggae/dub sounds this Christmas!
YAMÄYA features powerful Senegalese vocalist Khadim Sarr and members of established bands such as Lakuta, The Gentle Mystics and The Voodoo Love Orchestra. Together this collective of musicians from Brighton create an original groove-based music that is inspired by the raw energy and power of early, authentic afrobeat.
YAMÄYA Expand on Nigerian roots by drawing on influences from across the great African continent. From Baye Fall and Griots in the west to Ethiopiques in the east. This band endeavours to mould a music of the future by combining African roots with modern styles from dub to hip hop, jazz and far beyond!
