JoJo Abot, African Art, & the Leading Edge

“Mega Kpenu Nao” means “Let it Shame You Not”. This song and video features Ghanian artist Jojo Abot and was recorded in Kenya to mark the beginning of the AFRI-NA-LADI multimedia workshop.

AFRI-NA-LADI, which took place in Kenya 2015 & 2016, adopted the tagline: “Making Something out of Nothing… (But Ourselves)”. The collaborative multimedia residency featured a selection of Africa’s most innovative underground artists in FILM/PHOTOGRAPHY, MUSIC, FASHION & LITERATURE and was curated by Jojo Abot.
This particular track features the sounds of Kenyan DJ/Producer collective, EAST AFRICAN WAVE: a Nairobi based musical collective consisting of Nu fvnk, Jinku, Ukweli, Hirib∆e, and Muroe with a goal to challenge existing perceptions of what African music and art is.

Enjoy some of AFRI-NA-LADI’s photography.
