Metro is delighted to support ‘Sounds of Africa’, a new multimedia exhibition curated by British portrait and documentary photojournalist Michael Tubi, aka Michale Tubes, showcasing the work of African musical artists. 

Music has always played a major role in the African society. Instruments vary from region to region and common forms of musical expression are used from county to county and from tribe to tribe. ‘Sounds Of Africa’ aims to bring the variety and richness of contemporary African Music to new audiences, utilising predominantly photography and also videography to express his artistic vision in ‘Sounds Of Africa’ Tubi  aims to bring the variety and richness of contemporary African Music to new audiences.

Michael comments: “My hope for the exhibition is to promote a unique perspective of African music through popular and progressive African artists that embody the development of the continent.”

The exhibition includes over fifty C Type prints featuring established and emerging contemporary performers including Angelique KidjoSeun KutiSalawa Abeni, Hugh Masekela, Fatoumata Diawara and 2face as well as images printed on brushed Dibond utilising Metro’s Direct to Media printer.  Styles such as Afrobeat, Hi-Life, Fuji, Tcha Echo and Makosa  are all displayed in the works of photography, with Tubi hoping to open people up to greater understanding and appreciation for the different art forms.
