Ghanaian Singer and Songwriter Jojo Abot will perform at the 2017 BushFire Festival which will be held in Swaziland on May 26 to May 28.
MTN BUSHFIRE is Swaziland’s acclaimed international music and arts festival held each year at House on Fire, an inspired venue set against a breath-taking rural landscape in the heart of the Ezulwini valley.
The festival was named Africa’s Top Festival by BBC, and one of 7 African must-attend festivals by CNN. It features live music, theatre, poetry, film, circus, dance and visual arts from all over the globe.
Other performers are South African music Legend Hugh Masekela, rapper Kwesta and other known names.
JOJO ABOT is a Ghanaian artist expressing herself through music, film/photography, literature and performance art. FYFYA WOTO, meaning New Birth – New Discovery serves as the theme and title for her ongoing project exploring SELF as a provocative tool in the discovery, exchange and evolution of the subject of IDENTITY in relation to appropriation vs appreciation in a growing global conversation around shared space and shared identities.
Currently in NYC as a member of New Museum’s incubator program, NEW INC, Abot prepares to go on tour with a supporting slot on the incredible legend, Ms Lauryn Hill’s tour scheduled for fall, 2017 along with upcoming shows presented by Summerstage and Global Fest.
A true global fusionist and genre bender in both sound and artistic expression, Jojo Abot is poised to take the world by storm with her uniquely coined AFRO-HYNO-SONIC sound and otherworldly perspective.
