Africa Oyé is the UK's largest celebration of African music and culture and takes place annually in Liverpool. Beginning in 1992 as a series of small gigs in the city centre, the event has gone from strength-to-strength, moving to its present Sefton Park home in 2002 to cope with demand. This year over 40,000 visitors from arond the country were expected to descend on the park to listen to to artists from nations right across Africa.

 

Khaira Arby, from Timbuktu in the African state of Mali, made her apperance late on Sunday evening and her powerful voice  gave life to the songs and music of her home.
