Afroharmony harmony band takes republic bar by storm
I had heard that an a Afroharmony concert was a wonderful adventure but by the time this particular night was over, I had a new appreciation and respect for live music. Not only did the Afroharmony band play seamless successions of soothing jazz, but they blew us away with a perfectly crafted playlist of beautiful Afro tunes. I say , you need to have been there to understand it.
The band opened the concert with about an hour and half of old school gems to the delight of the audience. The republic bar was a full house this particular night , obviously the bands reputation had preceded it. Alas, however, we were not disappointed.
Largely the fun was mad infectious as you could see the Afroharmony boys having the time of their live on the stage. The audience,a rich mix of different ages and race could clearly be seen bumping their heads to the songs the band kept belting out , equally enjoying the outdoor ambience charged with live music.
However there was more candy in the stocking for us! The organizers of the concert, the 233live team , had more goodness planned for the night, a line up of talented artiste full of energy and good vibes. We heard the lovely Katy G and oh did she sing. Serenading us classics such as Asa’s jailer, Meghan trainers Like I’m going to lose you , and a particularly sultry version of Mr Eazi’s skintight, she gave me goosebumps all over my skin and I’m certain I was not the only one.
Then came the new Prince of highlife , Qojo Eshun. Singing his own original releases, Obour Ba, Fisherman and Odo, he brought a better part of the audience to its feet as they danced to the groovy melody and sang along. Harry followed up giving us major soul when he sang Don’t Change and Just Friends by Soul Child. He craftily switchrd to hip hop and it seemed the whole bar erupted into a burst of energy as the band went in hard on the drums and guitars, together they gave us an African rendition of JCole’s crooked smile and Benediction by August Alsina.
Last but definitely not least , YaYa performed her two original pieces KAE and Dumb Drum, ending with her sweet yet sassy rendition of Okyeame Kwame’s faithful. Truly a night of wonder, it ended with the Afroharmony band playing their Afro version of Tory lanez’s Say it and an original piece which took the nation by storm when it was released in May last year , Bonor.
In a nutshell, it was a fabulous experience and I cannot wait to see them in concert once again.
