Notes from the underground: YE YE Fever
You have the feeling and you can’t shake it off. You absolutely want to boogie to the rhythms of Africa. It can happen. All you need to do is to come down and catch the next Ye Ye Fever night at the Green Door Store on 18th February.
On the third Friday every month, you can shake it until 3 am in the morning if you want to. The sold out launch night of Ye Ye Fever was held at Komedia Studio Room on the 22nd January with music of deadly African rhythms.
It was a fun night free from recognizable pop tunes, which can be liberating and an alternative to a normal club night. Additionally, it was crowded enough to get a lap dance if you were sitting down. This bodes well for what’s to come.
The music ranges from contagious Afro sounds – from Afrobeat to Mbaqanga and OK Jazz to funky Highlife with a little bit of Kwassa Kwassa thrown in. Do get the Ye Ye Fever and dance to the joyous sounds of a continent.
The team behind the event are hoping Ye Ye Fever be the first of many big parties over the coming months. These will be intensely good feelings that you’d be truly dumb, dumb, dumb to miss out on. Anyone who’s been to any of the recent Mama Ko Mama Sa nights knows what to expect…Except here is a dance floor too. Something to remember is lights down low, vibes up high. There is nothing to stop you from going because the entry is free.
