Afro Pfingsten 2015

As Swiss residents we also like to keep you posted bout things going down in our country whenever something happens in relation to african music.
Last weekend the Afro Pfingsten took over Winterthur, a town near to Zurich, as usual at Pentecoast. Pfingsten is actually the German expression for Pentecoast so as you can guess it's a annual event to bring together afro culture from all over Switzerland.
Besides the many chances to grab some African food, my personal highlight is always the sunday night when great African artists such as Angélique Kidjo or Mory Kanté show their impressive live performances at the official concernt night.
This year's line up was a bit pared-down compared to the previous years but it was still a wonderful evening with a lot of energy. The line up included the Dele Sosimi Afrobeat Orchestra feat. Breis & African Boy, Sally Nyolo and the great Keziah Jones. At the zenith of the evening all artists performed together and it was simply impressive! Find some visual impressions below..
