Show Map

Leeds Town Hall

The Headrow, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS1 3AD

Rescheduled from 22 March 2020.

For one-night-only, experience the perfect blend of traditional and vibrant costumes, powerful vocals with beautiful harmonies, African instruments and percussions, energetic dancing, humour and lots of audience participation.

Exile of the African Warrior is centred around the àjoyo Festival and focuses on the tale of how an exiled African Warrior became a LEGEND! The production takes you on a spectacular visual and musical journey depicting the life (Urban legend) of Odùduwà a Yoruba Deity, considered to be the birth father to the Yoruba tribe, years before he assumed that title. The story is brought to life through the vocal chords and ancestral inspired melody of Bimbi Philips music, a perfect blend of visual and musical representation formed into a masterpiece.

Share the experience, experience the adventure!
