As Ghostpoet, the London born, Berlin-based artist and musician Obaro Ejimiwe creates emotionally
driven, introspective soundscapes with pensive poetry that defy any musical genre classification. Throughout the festival he will be showing the performative installation BLACKNUSS – TECHNOLOGIES OF JOY, CARE AND INTIMACY together with Luiza Prado, and also curated this night in the club. With SONIC EXPLORATIONS 001 Ejimiwe pursues his strategy of breaking with stereotypical eurocentric
labels that are continuously imposed on the musical practice of non-western BIPoC artists. Live shows by Kenyan sound artist KMRU, the future-folk duo dumama + kechou, who fuse sounds of North and South Africa, the Berlin BIPoC ensemble String Archestra and Hamburg-based singer Moyo Ray will showcase a wide spectrum of alternative, challenging and non-conformist approaches beyond common pop cultural mainstream clichés. This will be followed by a DJ set of Berlin-based Mokeyanju together with host Ghostpoet.

KMRU looks casually over his shoulder, he has short black hair, wears a black sweater and his face is slightly in shadow. Behind him a bluish background, in the middle a bright backlight.

Mokeyanju wears dreads, angular wooden earrings, thin-rimmed glasses and a loose band shirt knotted at the hip with three black musicians on it. She looks dreamily smiling into the camera.

The eight musicians of String Archestra, seven women and one man, all wear black clothes, smile joyfully into the camera, their string instruments in their hands. A female musician in the middle holds up a prize or trophy.
