Lagos Thursdays: Femi Koya

The Orbit Jazz Club
Thu 14 June   /   R140

The Fast and Furious has nothing on the acrobatic music village of Afrobeat when it comes to action!

The city of Lagos despises sluggishness, and so does the music that comes with Femi Koya's Afrobeat band. The nine-piece outfit is so hot you can't touch them, but you can feel them!

Lagos Thursdays brings you the music of Femi Koya Nigerian saxophonist and singer based in Johannesburg. Femi sees himself as part of a new Africa on the move; where home is not just one place but a multiplicity of places and influences.

Femi has performed and worked with Baba Maal, Angelique Kidjo, Yvonne ChakaChaka, Sipho Mabuse, and Simphiwe Dana among others. He has also shared a stage with Salif Keita, King Sunny Ade ,Youssou N'dou, Sibongile Khumalo, and Habib Keita.

Join Femi Koya's Afrobeat band on Thursday, 16 November 2017 at The Orbit as they dish out fresh music from his new album Village Afrobeat. The album will be launched in March.
