I grew up in Nigeria with a strong passion for music and culture. I watched my brother spend nights composing beautiful songs, which often ends up saved in his laptop with no platform to perform, no audience to listen and no way of getting the appropriate credits. He is one of the thousands of talented musicians from the African community who struggles every day to live their potential to the fullest. When my husband and I started Lydore Music, the goal was just to teach children music, because we believe that music plays an important role in a child's life; but as months passed by i realize that there is more to me, and more to be achieved, and it is time to start the cause, take the risk and pursue that dream of promoting African music and culture in the western world, and sharing its unique beauty with the world through music, dancing and so on. I believe that if people do not have the opportunity of visiting a place in Africa, they should at least have the privilege of experiencing the culture, music and dancing here in the United States and around the world.
Lydore Music Network is aimed at bringing the incredible stories, culture, music, language, and drama, of the indigenous people of Africa in a way as never before to the United States and across the globe.
