Waaw Africa productions & K.O. Company presents: Afrobeat night
Tämänkertaisessa konsertissa K.O. Comppanyn kanssa esiintyy helsinkiläinen Meissa Niang. Hän on esiintynyt aiemmin muun muassa maamme tunnetuimmassa maailmanmusiikkiyhtyeessä Piirpaukessa, ja laulanut myös Aki Kaurismäen Le Havre -elokuvan soundtrackilla.
Meissa Niang comes from a large griot family, and he sings and plays traditional Senegalese griot music. In addition, he writes and composes his own songs. With his fabulous band in Senegal and in Finland Meissa Niang sings and plays of course mbalax music, but also afro, funk, jazz and reggae and folk music from Finland. By his twentieth birthday Meissa Niang with his strong and extraordinary voice had already created a career in the famous Baobab Guygi Band in Senegal. In those times Finnish musician Hasse Walli discovered this young and so talented vocalist and brought him to Finland to perform with his Asamaan Band. Consequently, since 1992 Meissa Niang has been performing with different groups all over the world and continued to spread the tradition of the mbalax music outside his home country, as well as in Senegal. http://www.globalmusic.fi/en/meissa-niang-and-diambaar-band warm up : Pape Cisse & Mama Africajkl on stage klo 21.30 Tervetuloa värikkääseen ja energiseen spektaakkeliin Afrobeat Night Popparissa.

Jyväskylä`s most African Finnish drummer Keijo Koskenharju brings his K.O. Company to Poppari to present music from Africa. K.O. Company was founded for Waaw Africa Festival in spring 2014, when a Gambian artist, Jali Madi Kanuteh, was looking for supporting musicians for his performance. The newly created project turned out to be a big success and now Keijo wants to take it even further! In a cooperation like any other, K.O. Company makes music for African artists invited to Jyväskylä by Waaw Africa Productions. Afrobeat Night in Poppari, happening every second Wednesday of each month, presents live music and dance, introducing new program each time with guests and DJs.
