The Afrikan Revolution are a riot of colour and energy, a sprawling super-group of musicians from around the globe led by multi-talented musician Niles ‘Asheber’ Hailstones. Formed in 2007 and fuelled by the global ‘Afrikan Renaissance Movement’, the band presents an infinite yet seamless mixture of Afrikan, reggae, jazz, soul, blues and spoken word, all with a spiritual message. From the lyrical innovator (and youngest member) Heru, all the way to the esteemed elder of the group, master percussionist and music legend Baba Adesose Wallace, these artists will be using words and music to bring their stories to life in an uplifting, joyful afternoon.
Come with us on a joyful journey through song and stories as the explosive Afrikan Revolution tell stories from across the diaspora.
