African Music Festival

The Premier event in African music

  • A soto Koto Music & Entertainment Company

    The African Music Festival began in 1983 in Delft, Holland when Gambian producer Oko Drammeh decided to create a taste of home for the Africans living in Europe. It quickly became one of The Netherlands' biggest tourist draws, eventually subsidized by the Dutch Ministry of Culture and the City of Delft.

    Over the years, the Festival grew to become one of the world's largest African music events. Over the years, the event has featured most of the major names in African music, including Hugh Masekela, Miriam Makeba, Manu Dibango, Osibisa, Franco & OK Jazz, Thomas Mapfumo, Stella Chiweshe, Angelique Kidjo, and a host of others. Musicians, singers, drummers and dancers from all over the African continent have graced the stages of the African Music Festival. The African Music Festival made its American debut in 1997 at the John Anson Ford Theater in Hollywood, CA and featured the legendary group Osibisa. The Festival is also making its way soon to China and other parts of Asia.
