The Nigerian Afro-fusion  band, Villy and the Xtreme Volumes, alongside King Ayisoba and Ofie Kodjoe  from Ghana, will perform on Saturday, May 24, at the Alliance Française in Accra.

Music from Villy and the Xtreme Volumes  has been variously described as progressive, energetic and thought-provoking. 

It is actually a stomping fusion of traditional Afro-beat, highlife, Afro-folk, soul and rock that ask poignant questions of African leaders and confront the continent’s present issues head-on.  

The performance, which is titled Uncolonised, promises to be an evening of energy, expression, confrontation and education to ignite the senses. It will feature original graphic art onstage to add visual punch to the music. 

Kologo virtuoso, King Ayisoba, just back from a performance tour of Europe, is expected to excite fans with new compositions.

Singer, Ofie Kodjoe, has been busy of late and will prove once again why she has been so much in demand to perform in recent years. She will offer some tracks from her upcoming album.

Institut  Français (Ghana) and Alliance Française in Accra are sponsoring the Uncolonised concert.
