Friday, October 26, 2018

Gambian reggae dancehall act Lixen Khan (aka the Golden Voice) has returned to his country after a three-month tour of Europe.

Lixen Khan has been active in The Gambia, playing in major festivals including the Open Mic Festival and the Reggae Kunda Festival yearly.

While in Europe, Lixen performed in the Netherlands, Germany and Austria. In Austria, he performed at the fifth edition of Flag Flow High Senegambia, the biggest platform promoting Senegambian artistes in Europe.
According to the artiste, he was the first to perform, and his fellow artistes commended his performance.

“I want to bring people together. I want to talk on behalf of the people as I see music as a very good tool to spread Jah message and positivity,” he said. Notable for the songs ‘I wish Mama’, ‘Never blame the Youth’ and others, Lixen Khan said he will release an extended play record soon.

Fab Colley who spoke about Lixen Khan, the Austria-based show promoter running Flag Flow High Senegambia, said “He was the first artist to touch the stage that night alongside big name artist like Rebellion Therecaller, Sun Sooley, Sista Awa, Graduate aka Sam George, Deejay Limbo, Top Gun aka Bakary Marong and King Pata his performance was above par.

We should encourage artists like this to avoid our talented artists from absconding while in Europe.”
