WATCH OUT FOR FEMI KOYA AT MIELIEPOP FESTIVAL 2018

Mieliepop Festival 2018 is happening next weekend at the Tolderia Resort (near Lothair in Mpumalanga) and it promises to be one of the music festival highlights of 2018. A serene 4-day music festival experience like no other — complete with beautiful lakes, swimming pools and rolling lawns — a republic of its own.

Femi Koya, the new face of the African Renaissance. He combines Afrobeat and jazz, gospel and blues, West African highlife with a nostalgic Sophiatown flavour and his music is a rich blend of deep and sultry jazz and a contemporary groove. In other words: polish those dancing shoes before you go to Mieliepop 2018.

His musical influences include Fela Kuti, Bob Marley, Manu di Bango, Hugh Masekela, Baaba Maal & John Coltrane
He has shared the stage with Youssou N’dour and Yvonne Chaka Chaka at the CAF (Confederation of African Football Awards) in Lagos and with John Legend in his first South African tour in Cape Town. He performed alongside the king of Juju music, Sunny Ade, at the Glo launch in the Republic of Benin. Other colourful festivals felt Femi Koya’s acrobatic music, where he performed alongside the Wynton Marsalis, Oliver Mtukudzi, Habib Koite , Salif Keita, Baaba Maal. He has recorded with Simphiwe Dana, Pops Mohamed ,Yvonne Chaka Chaka, and worked with Baaba Maal, Angelique Kidjo, Wizkid just to mention a few.
