Underground to overground. Forest to metropolis. North Africa and South Africa, meeting up, digging down, finding gold in the seams. Here, at the intersection of club floor and ritual, of electronics and ceremony, are worlds both ancient and modern. Otherworlds, where inhibitions fall away, dancers shakedown and trance takes you out there, and far away.
Featuring a hot list of Congolese musicians including singer/multi-instrumentalist Cubain Kabeya, singers Muambuyi and Mengu Waku and guitarist Mopero Mupemba, variously from Congotronics acts including Mbongwana Star, Konono Nº1 and Kasai Allstars.
Montparnasse Musique is Algerian-French producer Nadjib Ben Bella’s and South African DJ Aero Manyelo.
