Feeling a bit camera shy


As villagers of the world, we believe we all have a story to share with the rest of the village. We hope that the multicultural tales of our music will speak to you in many different ways even if you don't always understand each word...Yawo and the Afrofunk band have been rocking the world village since 1997 when a first colaboration album was released with members of the group "doliho". In 1999 Yawo Attivor decided to relocate in Minneapolis, MN where he released the solo album "Celebrate"(Caveman Records, 2002). Two years later another album, "Take out the fences" is released in front of a sold out crowd at the "Cabooze" in Minneapolis. The band will be nominated for both the 2003 and 2004 MN Music Awards For their "Intriguing and yet accessible" funky grooves. The afrofunk adventure has taken the group to places such venues as the shows "Africa Song" of Radio Africa 1(Paris, France) and "Plein Sud" of Radio France Internationale. The've also rocked many other venues around the US, including Yale, Loyola, Macalester, U. of WI-Madison-Milwaukee-River Falls, club First Ave, MN State Fair, Duke University, U. of NC-Asheville, U. of Virginia-Charlottesville, venues in Seattle, Portlanc, Bend(OR)...etc..Yawo is currently working on "ROCKING THE VILLAGE", a semi-acoustic project with special guest artist JOHN D'EARTH(Trumpet maverick and Dave Matthews collaborator on their album "Before these crowded streets"). "ROCKING THE VILLAGE" is due for a late March 2007 release and promises to bring together the traditions of the Ewe tribe of West Africa and concepts from Reggae, Jazz and funk...From the Ewe to the heartland of America, there's a cry for peace and freedom that can only be heard if we let the music speak for itself.
