Yolanda Eyama’s prestige is recognised in the field of African music. She has spend many years dedicating body and soul to the black music of the cultures of Africa. She merges the songs of her origins with pop, funk, jazz and contemporary soul in her own way.

Yolanda sings in African languages, Spanish, English and French. She raps, sings, recites and modulates her way through the cadences and rhythms of Africa. Combined with her sensational band Afro World Groove which features top quality musicians on drums, bass, percussion, guitars, horns and more, they create a party experience which is second to none.


John Blood & The Highlys is a Reggae band from North and East London that has grown together since 2010. The band has been cultivating its sound, led by John, from a vibration that aims to show the world a positive reality through music. The band’s members as well as its major musical influences come from Africa, the Caribbean, Europe and the UK, but it’s our love for the word, sound and power of Reggae music that has brought us together, to continue its legacy of bringing consciousness and joy to the world.

The band's name comes from wanting to show that we are all a John or a Jane Doe and therefore all human and all equal, that we all share the same Blood and that we are Highly blessed to have life, love and music, all of which we are most grateful for.
