Performance DJing, video, 3D
In memory of Logobi :  an installation about the collective black amnesia in France. by Christelle Oriyi, dj, producer, freelance, sound designer and french critic.

Oriyi proposes a multidisciplinary project combined with DJing, video and 3D where she shows the hybrid and unprecedented nature of the urban Logobi music style at the crossroads between Belgian hard-tech and Ivory Coast’s offbeat coupé décaler. It’s the story of an immediate contemporary history that has been voluntarily forgotten. That of the Logobi dance, born in the early 2000s in the neighborhoods of Abidjan in Ivory Coast.

21h > 22h
Concert
MC Black Odhiambo (KY)
Charismatic slammer and rapper, Blak Odhiambo lives in Kibera, the gigantic ghetto south Nairobi, capital of Kenya. Kibera is a lively neighbourhood, from where a good share of the artistic energy of the Kenyan capital emerges. He draws his inspiration from reggae, Kenyan music, rap, but also in unlikely encounters with the sandstone of his urban wanderings. He will present his new multimedia project: Panthera Leo.

22h > 23h30
Dj Raph & Nita (KY/ AT)
Producer, electronic musician and dj from Nairobi. On Sacred Groves, Dj Raph trains complex electronic music and Pan African ethnographic field recordings. His live set is a virtuoso juggling of beats and voices of the past. Sampling and looping on the fly, he creates hypnotic moments of insight into a timeless universe that blends modern electronic bass, African chants, and traditional rhythms. He avoids kitschy or clichéd clothing, but seeks out the essence of African dance music. Live visuals by Austrian VJ Nita.

DJ SEBCAT (Rebel Up! Bxl)

On his own tonight as LeBlanc is away on business… Bonnefooi says > This guy is one of Brussels’ most underestimated Global Groove Dj’s, with a musical network from Rajasthan to New Yorkistan and a musical selection that goes even farther and deeper into tropicalism and obscure global dance music.

Whatever you will get from him, in sound or food, it will be filled with specials spices and hotness. Caliente!

SPACE LADY (US)
T H E S P A C E L A D Y is a street-performing singer based in Colorado, USA. Originally beginning on the streets of Boston in the late 70s and has recently begun playing again She has travelled through the stars to bring us the most wonderfully alien take on electronic street-song, channelled through a soul that has taken in UFO sightings, hiding from the US government, homelessness, communing, hitchhiking, and over two decades of playing the street corners, storefronts, and subways of America. A Casio battery-powered keyboard, vocal mic and echo & phaser controls are all the ingredients required for a live experience to align the spheres.
