No one can deny that our relationship with Africa was from the very moment the forced migration of Africans to America began. Our Liberator Simon Bolivar expressed back in 1817 “we are more an extension of Africa than of Europe.” The Bolivarian process inspired by President Hugo Chavez since 1999 inserted Africa in the daily life of the Venezuelan people.
The month of May is for Venezuelans a referential date on which we claim the contribution of Africa to our independence and our cultural diversity. For Venezuelans, Africa is a very important continent of our historical legacy. From May 1795 to May 2015. 220 years of libertarian insurgency of José Leonardo Chirino. A libertarian insurrection of blacks who sought to eliminate slavery. An insurrection which set a historic precedent for the independence of Venezuela.
The African Revolution Leaders poster exhibition aims to express the support and respect of the Venezuelan people for the great African leaders who spearheaded the liberation of Africa from imperialism.’ – H.E. The Ambassador, The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.

Performances & DJ Sets W/ Schlachthofbronx ft. Alai K, DJ Tendwa & Just a Band, May 19 2015 @ Tree House Club
Schlachthofbronx is a DJ duo from Munich/Germany who produces and plays innovative multi genre club music. Besides being known as on point performers on club and festival stages, the guys also built their reputation with production and studio work with and for artists like Snoop Dogg, M.I.A., Major Lazer, Buraka Som Sistema, Bonde Do Role, and others. In the club they deliver a fast paced, eclectic mix of styles and genres, reflecting their various influences reaching from Dancehall/Reggae and Hip Hop over Booty Bass to Techno, Cumbia and UK Bass – amongst others.
Their new ten-track release titled Rave And Romance directly represents the diversity of their unique sound between rump shaking slow jams and bass-heavy rave tunes. Fellow ravers and romantics Nicky Da B, Warrior Queen, Bonde Do Role and candelilla got recruited for the release and added the shouts as well as the dirty talk. These guys play clubs, festivals, museums, tents, boats, floats, busses, strip joints and beer tents – it doesn’t matter where, Schlachthofbronx always starts a party. With their Rave And Romance formula – and their bag of custom made tracks and exclusives – Schlachthofbronx will continue to put happy and sweaty smiles upon peoples’ faces.
Supporting acts from Nairobi will be DJ Tendwa, Alai K and Just A Band. This event takes place in the context of the German Week 2015.
