Les Wanyika, others to perform at FESTAC Africa festival

The organisers of FESTAC Africa festival have announced that legendary band, Les Wanyika, will be among those performing at this year’s festival.

The organisers in a statement by its Chairman, Yinka Abioye, said the event will be held in Arusha, Tanzania, from May 21 to 27, 2023.

According to him, their presence will be a homecoming for the band.

He added that attendees will enjoy timeless songs such as Sina Makosa, Amigo, Afro among others.

“The fun seekers will be transported to yesteryears by a band that will be very present in the moment,” Abioye said.

He added, “This will be a Homecoming for the band and a renaissance of their past accomplishments. From the outset, Festac was founded on the acknowledgment, understanding and appreciation of the social capital inherent in the African people.

“The abundance of that social capital is found in our music, art, cuisine, fashion, creative writing, sports and of course, business.

“Les Wanyika will grace the stage with South African artists in an epic salute to the brotherhood, the courage and unparalleled support of Tanzania and other nations, which despite having attained their own independence acknowledged the fact that if any African nation was not yet uhuru, then none of us were.”

Continuing, he said, “FESTAC Africa aims and strives to present black and African cultures to bring to light the diverse contributions of African people, to promote African artists and performers, and to facilitate world acceptance and access to global outlets for Africans in the art space

“We strive to promote better international, interracial understanding of the diversity of the African culture, rhythm, and talents. We also endeavor to facilitate a periodic return to our origins in Africa by our artists, writers and performers uprooted and currently residing in other continents.”
