Afrofuturism & Electronics
Afro, Elektro, Grime, Bass, Rave
From 2012 – 2014 the Ten Cities project brought together 50 arists from ten african & european cities. Recording sessions, collaborations, partys and concerts took place in Berlin, Bristol, Cairo, Johannesburg, Kyiv, Lagos, Lisbon, Luanda, Nairobi & Naples. The musical outcome was released on a triple vinyl album on Soundway Records UK.
The idea went on and various collaborations made their own way on records, projects & concerts and inspired artists and scenes involved. 29.11.2019 we´ll bring back the spirit and celebrate it with a TEN CITIES jam at Yaam Berlin.
Berlin´s electronic wizards Gebrüder Teichmann will play a liveset together with Yoruba percussionist and singer Wura Samba (Kazia Jones, ua.)
London-born, Berlin-based producer, song- writer and DJ Sasha Perera (Jahcoozi) performs with her highly acclaimed project Perera Elsewhere.
Alai K from Nairobi (Ukoo Flani, Nyege Nyege Tapes) will present his Disco Vumbi project, that blends eastafrican influences and electronic dance music.
And one of our favorites Dj Mixanthrope (African Beats and Pieces) will show the diversity of Africas contemporary electronic music scenes.
The Nigerian yoruba percussionist and singer Wura Samba and Berlin´s electronic multitalents Gebrüder Teichmann met in Lagos, Nigeria through the TEN CITIES Project. After their succesful debut on Soundway Records (V.A. – Ten Cities) they are happy to present their first EP „2 Cities / Berlin – Lagos“, which is also the first release of the new NOLAND Tracks series.
