This unmissable night features Ivory Coast reggae star Tiken Jah Fakoly's political lyrics, Jamaican grooves and lush African instrumentation.

In a double bill with Nigerian princess of soul pop Asa, Tiken will perform hits from his critically acclaimed new album African Revolution.

Asa's powerful vocals and stirring melodies soar above funky rhythms; she is hot property on the continent with her Best Female Artist nomination in this year's Les Victoires de la musique (French Music Awards) and new album Beautiful Imperfection.
