// Featured artists will include:

Jagwa Music — the leading exponent of the Mchiriku style, which originated twenty years ago in the poor suburbs of Dar es Salaam ft. casio keyboards, vintage amps, and megaphone, resulting in gritty, edgy,distortion-laden sound. This new style now thrives in Tanzania, although it’s been deliberately ignored by the media, as it is associated with uhuni (thuggery) and the city’s low life.

Swahili Ally: DIGO — a talented musician from Tanga who fuses his vibrant performance of digo music with the dazzling sound of the kora. He uses the West African instrument to pronounce his digo heritage in a unique style. His powerful message, delivered though his strong and enchanting voice, delivers a memorable and exciting performance.

Matona + Man Sulei — icons of ‘Swahili Jazz’, an original and unique arrangement of traditional music styles, which includes Swahili songs, Arabic forms, oriental tunes and jazz. The African component celebrates the traditional music of Tanzania, the music of the Comoro Islands, Mayotte, La Reunion, Madagascar and Ethiopia.

Chi — Tanzanian by way of Senegal, Chi is a nomadic songstress who makes music as diverse as her upbringing. A self-titled “Neo-Soul Revolutionary,” Chi seamlessly blends her lyrical styling with soul, R&B, old-school blues and rock, fearlessly expressing her equally multi-faceted soul.

Caroline Anande Uliwa a.k.a Carol Anande — a poet, singer & budding percussionist from Dar es Salaam, Tanzania who creates diverse work that is unique and packs serious grit – albeit raw in its presentation.

+ a special early DJ session ft. John Kitime and his impressive Tanzanian vinyl collection, a live graffiti showcase, a stunning dance performance by T-Africa, and an exhibition by our current Artist in Residence, Marius Comanns (Germany).

+ the event will be preceded by this month’s ChapChap Photomontage: Public Art Workshop from 4pm!
