YAP aka YUNG AFRIKA PYONEERS
Afrobeat & Highlife inspired by Marcus Garvey, Kwame Nkrumah formed the first Young African Pioneer movement in Ghana in the 60s to promote Pan-African ideology amongst the youth. This ideology was adopted by Fela Kuti and he subsequently formed a manifestation of the Young African Pioneers in his sovereign home, Kalakuta Republic, in the 70s. In the 21st century the latest manifestation of young african pioneers takes the spirit of Nkrumah, Garvey, Fela and applies it to a Post-afrobeat, Post-post-Truth world, and attempts, using the popular music forms of africa and beyond, to forge a new ideological direction for a new generation. Come and soak in their delicious Afro grooves.
Rooted in the african drum. Revolutionary 21st century griots DanJahDan, Hunta PRO, Majical, Mercury and Watusi 87 deliver a message with a deep social spitiual conscious, served up with soulful and crunchy live hip hop.
