AFRO-TECH FEST: Finale

Rekorder | Gneisenaustraße 55 | 10/28/2017 , 21:00

With: Jace Clayton, Kondi Band, Luka Productions, Nídia, Nkisi, Lamin Fofana, DJ /rupture

The musician and DJ Lamin Fofana has curated a fascinating and highly danceable concert and party night for the Afro-Tech Fest. The end of the festival will be entirely dedicated to contemporary music and popular culture from different African countries, highlighting its diversity and desire for innovation. Africa is witness to the emergence of countless musical scenes who are inventing their own style outside of the western music industry, developing new forms of international cooperation through the Internet and finding new ways to spread their music.

Some of the participating artists and musicians combine Africa's heterogeneous cultural heritage with modern electronic production facilities and aesthetics. Others create futuristic-sounding songs and tracks telling of a different and more diverse future beyond the western perspective. Here the idea of Afrofuturism, which originated in the African diaspora, returns to its origins, reconnecting with much older narrative traditions and visions of the future.

The programme includes a lecture by Jace Clayton (US), concerts by Kondi Band (Sierra Leone) and Luka Productions (Mali) as well as DJ sets from Nídia (Angola), Nkisi (Congo), Lamin Fofana (Sierra Leone) and DJ/rupture (US) – all night long!
