Ten Cities Pop Up
Date & Time: 19th April 2013, 10.00 pm
Venue: Maendeleo House
Entrance : Free

Whether it’s Nairobi or Naples, Bristol or Johannesburg: in all the major cities of Africa and Europe, people get together in dedicated spaces to dance to music and party – and form communities and subcultures. Club culture is a global phenomenon, but what kind of music are people dancing to? What sort of public sphere do club cultures create? And what happens when the club music from two different continents meets head on?

Over the last few years we have organised quite a number of projects that go beyond Kenya, but TEN CITIES is our biggest endeavor so far. It 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 the unwritten history of club culture in Cairo, Johannesburg, Luanda, Lagos and Nairobi as well as in Berlin, Bristol, Kiev, Lisbon and Naples.

To start the project off in Nairobi, we are setting up a club at an special location. For one night only, we transform an actual restaurant into a great party place by adding a distinct clubbing atmosphere to the interior.
Blinky Bill and DJ Raph will spin and play some hot tunes to join us all in!
