FeileAfrica was formed at the end of 2002 as a project to inject new life and cultural diversity into the Cork music scene, to give an Irish perspective on African culture and an African perspective on Irish culture. We have since produced many shows around the whole of Ireland.

FeileAfrica is the only movement in Ireland to have such a dedicated regular program of Music from The African Diaspora touring the whole of Ireland (both sides of the border) throughout the year and featuring such a wide range of  musical styles, from the hardcore dancehall rhythms and Dakar Rap of Daara J to the cool jazzy sophistication of Virginia Rodrigues.
FeileAfrica also works with many artists of diverse ethnic origins that are currently living in Ireland. Click here to see more details and hear audio samples
