This weekend will see a celebration of Black music at the Brewery Arts in Kendal.

Double MOBO award winner YolanDa Brown will headline on Friday, with UK afro supergroup Afriquoi performing on Saturday.

The organisation Anti Racist Cumbria detailed how great it was to see so much Black 'musical excellence' coming to the county.

A spokesperson said: "YolanDa is phenomenal and her music is a delicious fusion of reggae, jazz and soul.

"Then you have the masterful five-piece show of Afriquoi, which combines Gambian kora, Congolese guitar and Mandinka percussion styles with electronic music, creating something unique."

Ms Brown was awarded an OBE for services to music, music education and broadcasting in the New Year's Honours List in 2023.

She has toured with The Temptations, Jools Holland’s Rhythm and Blues Orchestra and Billy Ocean, and has collaborated with other artists including Dave Stewart from Eurythmics.

She is a broadcaster working across TV and radio, including her series for CBeebies, “YolanDa’s Band Jam”, which won the RTSNW award for Best Children’s Programme.

Doors for her show will open at 7:30pm, with standards tickets costing £28.

Promoting Afriquoi, Anti Racist Cumbria added: "They are true fusion music in the best sense of the word, bringing together a vast depth of musical knowledge, culture and life experience.

"Every musician is a band leader in their own right."

The group's members span three decades in age and originate from Africa, the Caribbean and the UK.

Following their formation in 2011, Afriquoi have grown to be a global sensation, with their electronic music a mainstay for clubs across the world.

Doors open on September 30 at 8pm, and tickets can be bought here for £16.50.
