OLUZAYO - African Music Futures /w Satch Hoyt "Afro-Sonic Mapping" | Mark Ernestus´ Ndagga Rhythm Force | DJ Nacheit
OLUZAYO - Zulu for "What lies ahead." An extraordinary music festival taking place in Cologne and in Johannesburg in 2023. The focus: musical creativity, innovations and experiments from Africa. In experimental songs and transcultural mixtures, in contemporary orchestral and ensemble music or the further development of indigenous traditions, in audiovisual narratives or conceptual sound art.
For Senegalese economist and musician Felwine Sarr, one of Africa's leading intellectuals, music, art and literature are the most important resources for developing visions for Africa's future and overcoming the foreign domination of Africa's (post-)colonial past and present. "Oluzayo" explores music and sound as a field that reflects these dissonances and possibilities - as well as the complex interconnections between Africa and Europe. Great and very different music and unfamiliar sounds, new ideas and surprising emotions.
