The worlds famous Reggae Star Tiken Jah Fakoly along side his full band in the early hours of Saturday morning landed at Asmara International Airport ahead of their five days visit scheduled in Asmara Eritrea.
The two days concert planned on Monday 06th Feb 2012 that is due to take place at the famous Cinema Roma, and the free open-air concert on the 7th Feb 2012 at Bahti Meskerem has been the discussion topic of Asmara’s bistros.
Organising the event PFDJ Cultural Affairs (Peoples Front for Democracy & Justice), NUEYS (National Union of Eritrean Youth & Students), in collaboration with Alliance Francaise d’Asmara have one particular aim in common: NO TO FGM (Female Genital Mutilation)!
Tiken Jah Fakoly famously known for his songs that carry a Pan African flavor are appreciated by many worldwide. Many of his songs are also associated with Social Justice, and awareness towards conspiracies of External forces.
The likes of Tiken are more favorable in Eritrea particularly because of his language that he speaks as it coincides with philosophy of the Eritrean Government, and the state of mind of the Eritrean people.
Tiken and his bands visit also includes a short tour to some parts of Asmara and surroundings, stay tuned for updated information on the events.
