ABOUT
 
DJ KATAPILA
The Ghanaian DJ/producers marathon, relentlessly joyful DJ sets have swiftly become a thing of legend: splicing the neo-traditional dance music styles of his youth in Accra with the uptempo, bass-heavy, Roland 808-rooted sounds of Detroit techno, Chicago acid and ecstatic 90s chart house, Katapila adorns his killer selections with live electronic percussion and vocal interjections that help galvanise waves of full-blown euphoria wherever he plays.

GHANA IS THE FUTURE
by Peter Guyer and Thomas Burkhalter, CH 2015, (O/Engl), 25 min. Synopsis: The FOKN Bois raise money for the United States of America in the streets of Ghana. Their provocative motto: «Africa is on the way up, and the US are on the way down.» This short movie shows how these two rappers compete with, against and within various growing markets in Ghana: new churches like the «Alive Chapel International», and mobile phone companies like «Glo Mobile». This is an XL-teaser for the forthcoming long film project “contradict – aka Sound Translations” shot in Accra. // Musikfilm-FestivalNorient

FLORIAN SIEVERS
Rural to urban, drums to data. In the energetic megacities between the Sahara and the Cape of Good Hope, battalions of Afro Rhythm Computers are hammering out new beats. BOMAYÉ! in Berlins ACUD club brings you these beats of contemporary urban Africa. Bass music, programmed rhythms, African electronic club music, from Mali to Kenya, from Nigeria to South Africa, from Kuduro and Coupé-Décalé to Balani Show, Bacardi House or Gqom. Traditions get carried on in digital forms. Its still the motherland, but forget about your clichés. BOMAYE! is programmed by Florian Sievers.
