Chale Wote Street Art Festival

The annual Chale Wote Street Art Festival took place in Ghana’s Capital, Accra at the end of last month. The streets of James Town turned into an excited sea of people, some performing music with intricate rhythms and wandering melodies, others holding talks and community workshops whilst the constant smell of fresh paint and spray cans was drifting in around the bystanders.

One of the many groups of Street performers at this years festival.

James Town is also renown for its history of Boxing, the youngsters are taught the basics and are encouraged to spar from a young age.

You will find a mixture of collaborations taking place at Chale Wote festival, here is a prime example of a group of graffiti artists working together to renovate and bring back to life the side of this hotel.

Steloo embraced this years festival theme of ‘Africa Electronics’, before he took to the stage to perform on the decks. You can hear Steloo’s and Yaw-P latest track ‘Fashion Statement’ on the link below.
