We are super happy to welcome the amazing duo of DJs / producers UMOJA from the Netherlands. For several years, UMOJA has been relentlessly switching between DJ performances on major stages and recent studio & recordings sessions with local artists in Uganda and Kenya. Combining a deep knowledge of roots music from Africa, Latin America, Antilles & beyond with a great sense of creativity, they have released a large amount of edits & own productions that leaves no global underground party animal indifferent 🐧🐧🐧

Our local team of global underground DJ’s > DJ Chokkou, Rebel Up SebCat and Le Grand MΓ©chant Loop, will also be behind the decks with the clear intention to set the room on fire πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯

And that’s not all folks – we’ll take care of your eyes also πŸ™‚ Our beloved “visual wizard” Maria Ilia will bring this musical trip to the next level with a special video mapping performance.
