The African Descent Festival has invited South Africa’s reggaestar Nkulee Dube, daughter of reggae legend Lucky Dube, and Ghana’s reggaestar Friction to perform at the annual festival taking place on the 22nd and 23rd of July in Vancouver. Both artists are headliners of the African Descent Festival in Vancouver.
Friction will perform on both days, backed up by a live band from Vancouver. He travelled to Vancouver on Tuesday the 18th of July, after he finished five festival-shows in a row in Holland and Belgium the week before. In the coming days he will participate in activities related to the African Descent festival, such as radio and tv interviews and a press presentation in the City Hall of Vancouver. He is keeping his fans and followers up to date through his facebook FrictionGhana.
The show on the African Descent Festival is part of Friction’s worldwide tour, which he started last year and is continuing this year. Every week he and his band The Roots Drivers are performing on about 3 or 4 festivals and events, giving the crowd an unforgettable time and representing Ghana and Africa to the fullest, through uplifting African beats, songs with Ghanaian languages (Twi and Hausa), and the use of the Talking Drum.
