Gbedu Town Radio

About the Artist

Over-articulated and barely translated, Gbedu Town Radio tells dynamic stories for the culture. Led by Artistic Director, Nkeiruka Oruche, and featuring a dynamic group of performers, GTR explores social and political themes through Pan Afro-Urban music and dance including Afrobeats, Dancehall, Coupé-Décalé & varieties of Hip hop.

Gbedu Town Radio performances and workshops have graced many venues including Zellerbach Hall, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Stern Grove Festival, Oakland Museum of California, Malonga Casquelourd Center for the Arts, UC Davis, The Umoja Festival, Yoshi’s SF, Dance Mission Theater, San Francisco Ethnic Dance Festival, the Independent, the California Academy of Sciences, and more. And our performers have shared stages with Onyeka Owenu, Magic System, Seun Kuti, Yemi Alade, Mr. Eazi, Burna Boy, Mokoomba, Tribu Baharú, Les Twins to name a few.

Gbedu Town Radio is a project of Afro Urban Society, an incubator and presenter of Afro-Urban performing and visual arts, culture, media, and social discourse. A lively group of dancers, musicians and all-around performers representing the diverse African Diaspora, they are your bus ride to an upbeat romping, riveting and rousing time.
