He is that DJ that spins all

In this musical edition we are featuring multiple award-winning DJ Spinall(Sodamola Oluseye Desmond ), one of the main forces pushing afrobeats forward from behind the decks .
Earlier this year, Spinall released the excellent album Ten, which has birthed many dance floor hits and which features top-tier collaborations with Mr Eazi, Ice Prince, Sarkodie, Patoranking and more. He’s also recently dropped the massive “Olowo,” alongside Davido and Wande Coal.
And as he says in the interview” I really, really want to take the music around the world, not just in Africa. I want to take the music to Asia; I want to take the music to places that we have Africans at. We have Africans almost in every part of the world.Also, beyond selling my music to Africa, or introducing Africans to the music, I want to introduce the world itself to the music. I’m looking forward to EDM sessions, and sessions in other genres.Basically, I want to push African music but not leave behind the culture. Because I feel like the culture is what lead to the music.”
Dj Spinall is someone who really, really loves music, and he listens to everything. Is a big fan of hip-hop and he really loves R&B. he loves afrobeats, he loves afropop. He loves fuji music, he loves reggae, he loves dancehall. So basically, he is that DJ that spins all. That’s how we came about the name DJ Spinall.

Nalaikki Fair – Blues

After the Can of Worms – Johnny’s play we had a short intermezzo by a blues man – Tirion pays his debt.
Although it was getting late, and many left the Youth Centre, many more has just come to enjoy the last few act of the Nalaikki Fair, which has prove once more that community does want to, and need to celebrate together. …. Christams spirit has returned…

Jazz Cafe

“Return of our American Brothers” was the working title of last night concert at Visitor’s Centre and was put together with enthusiastic energy of Amando and Dhani. ….and others.
Three sets of musicians with different musical styles, starting with Edo’s Band rendering some classical rock pieces, Amando and Dhani with Peter on drums continued in it but at the last set jazz lovers came on their expense.
In this one we heard Dhani on guitar, Shanks on guitar and trumpet, Matthew on saxophone, Rolf on bass, Shakti on piano and Suresh on drums.
We know that we have some great “home” musicians which has been proven over and over but last night went even higher that that. Amazing

kudos to Matthia for sound
