LMHR #SpeakUpThursday (01/04/2021)
For Episode 21 of the #speakupthursday radio show we had the honour Tod speaking with Yahael Camara-Onono. Yahael is the founder and band leader of Balimaya Project, a 17-piece collective of multi-talented musicians, celebrating West African folklore with modern musical arrangements and sounds. He programmed a playlist of some of his favourite west African songs which were a joy to listen too. You may have seen him on stage in London at Jazz Refreshed, Church of Sound, Afropunk, or collaborating with other prominent London artist such as Nubya Garcia. Yahael is a musical force not to be overlooked and we can’t wait to hear the debut record which is out soon.
