  Toby Foyeh and the singer-dancers  
Toby Foyeh & Orchestra Africa will bring a diverse blend of African music to Coastal Carolina University's Recital Hall in the Thomas W. and Robin W. Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts for a free concert at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 10.

The performance will feature the band's unique "Afrijam" genre, a fusion of traditional Nigerian Yoruba music, African Highlife and Afrobeat with more modern jazz, rock, Latin and pop. Toby Foyeh & Orchestra Africa tour worldwide with its assortment of traditional African instruments, including the Gangan and Bata drums, as well as the flute, guitars, keyboards, synthesizers, percussion instruments and a chorus of female singer-dancers dressed in African costumes.

Toby Foyeh, who sings, composes, produces and arranges the band's music, was born and raised in Nigeria. The award-winning, self-taught musician studied at Berklee College of Music in Boston and Howard University in Washington, D.C., where he also earned a degree in film directing.
