Latest update from Africa Oye Festival
2 days to go!
Here at Africa Oyé, we love music and we want you to protect your ears!
Around 900,000 people have severe or profound deafness, at least 24,000 of whom use British Sign Language (BSL). There is a vibrant Deaf community in the UK, with a shared history, culture and language, who consider their deafness part of their identity.
Age-related damage to the cochlea is the single biggest cause of hearing loss. It is the result of a combination of environmental and genetic factors.
Loud music can also affect your ears!
When out at gigs, clubs and festivals:
– Carry earplugs with you – and use them – whether on a night out and at festivals.
– Stay away from the speakers – the closer you are, the greater the risk of hearing damage.
– Take regular breaks from the loudest areas to give your ears a rest.
