‘Somalia’s disco stars are back in the groove’ – Evening Standard
We’re delighted to annouce that Africa Oyé, Liverpool Arab Arts Festival and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic are bringing the legendary Somalian group, Dur-Dur BAND International (Somali Music Band) to #Liverpool on Friday 20 May 2022
Originating from the Mogadishu disco scene, Dur-Dur Band disbanded in the early 90s, as the country plunged into a civil war. They were unable to continue playing in their city and scattered abroad. Now, Dur-Dur are a time capsule, transporting audiences to the 1980s and the legendary Hotel Juba with their unique brand of Somalian disco-funk.
