Band on the Wall welcomes British-American-Nigerian guitarist and vocalist Toby Foyeh to Manchester with his band, the Orchestra Africa.
Toby Foyeh and his band take you on a musical journey from Africa to Europe and America, where traditional Yoruba music, Highlife and Afrobeat meet pop, rock and jazz with scintillating guitars.
Though absorbing various western elements, the music is fresh and original. His band has performed in the USA, Canada, Japan, Europe and the Caribbean, entrancing audiences around the world and appearing at major festivals such as Fuji Rock Festival, Nigaata, Japan, 17 International Jazz Festivals including Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, Detroit, Syracuse, Washington DC, Jamaica, Grenada, Bahamas, Curacao and Malta, plus many universities and performing arts centres.
The band is very visual on stage, with colourful costumes, and call and response singing in English and Yoruba!
