Here is the Wahala show edition which focuses on Afrobeat and the Art of Lemi Ghariokwu, filmed on location at Rich Mix during the first days of the Art’s Own Kind exhibition! Click HERE to watch the show.
WAHALA went down the RICH MIX in East London to investigate and capture the raw energy of this amaizing gathering of world-class AFRO talent in London: We meet and greet musicians Dele Sosimi, Philladelphia DJ Rich Medina, recording artist/singer/dancer Wunmi and legendary artist Ghariokwu Lemi and drummer extrordinaire Tony Allen. The event was organised by PUNCH RECORDS. A Birmingham based organisation pushing the boundaries of black culture in the UK.
