Artists perform in the dark to light up Africa

Save the date for the best experience you’ll never see. Dark Room Sessions and SolarAid have partnered to bring you live music with a lineup of artists that will take you on an audible journey from East to West Africa and throughout while you are immersed in darkness.

All profits from the concert will go toward empowering local entrepreneurs and designing sustainable programmes that get clean, safe and affordable solar lights to remote communities without access to electricity in Africa.
