Read about the ten cities project on The Guardian
TEN CITIES is a music and research project that brings together musicians and writers from ten cities in Africa and Europe. The project initiates music production and details them unwritten history of club culture in Cairo, Johannesburg, Luanda, Lagos and Nairobi as well as in Berlin, Bristol, Kyiv, Lisbon and Naples. TEN CITIES is a process, focusing on creating and producing, carried forward by travels and visits. During this process, the project aims at creating networks that are open and involve more and more participants. Although the cooperations between each African and European cities are set, GI Nairobi thought why not to break it up once and open up further networks.
Hence they are inviting the renowned British DJ/producer Rob Smith from Bristol and Dirty Paraffin’s Okmalumkoolkat from Johannesburg to Nairobi! Rob Smith is one of the veterans of the Drum & Bass/Jungle sound in Europe and has been of huge influence both as DJ and with his band Smith & Mighty. He is currently on the Grand Central Records independent record label, playing Breakbeat Hip Hop, Dub and Reggae-influenced music.
Okmalumkoolkat is one half of South Africa’s up and coming music duo, Dirty Paraffin. Their lyrically witty and clever primer stove music is making waves on the local and international music scene. Some call their music electronic-kwaito, other call it trap, but they prefer to not to put their music in a box.
Together with some local DJs they will get you rocking during a bash on the street in front of the Goethe-Institut.
