Ghostpoet presents Sonic Explorations 001
With KMRU, dumana+kechou, String Archestra, Moyo Ray, Ghostpoet, Mokeyanju
A concert and party evening that breaks with the stereotyping of BIPoC musicians' artistic practice, curated and hosted by Ghostpoet.
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.
