Alliance Française Accra brings the second edition of the Electronic music Festival. This year it has been rebranded as Future Fest with international and local bands and DJs who would electrify Accra and get heads nodding and feet tapping. This time we have Say Yes Dog (from Luxembourg) and Dj Débruit (from France) on board as international guest. Alliance Francaise Accra is glad to welcome Say Yes Dog as part of the Future Fest. Praised by the Guardian, Say Yes Dog, two Berliners and one Luxembourger, is a perfect blend of pop and house music. It will for no doubt make everybody dance!
Débruit is a musical explorer from France. His music is electronic but with a human feel; it explores complementary culture clashes, combining elements that have never existed together before. To date he has released two albums and five EPs including the now classic electro-afrobeat single “Nigeria What” from the “SpatioTemporel” EP, which dancers all over the globe are still choreographing their own videos to. He is excited about coming to perform in Africa. The festival will comprise of workshops about recording with a laptop and producing electronic music and also a workshop on song writing on Wednesday 21st and Thursday 22nd October from 6pm to 8pm at Alliance Française Accra led by Say Yes Dog band members, followed by a small free French style cocktail.
