Sacred Groves is the debut album of Nairobi-based producer DJ Raph. It is a gem of a record: Considered, emotional and contagious. Sacred Groves opens up a timeless musical universe that is both ancient and futuristic; a deep melange of modern electronic bass music, African chants and traditional rhythms. It was released by Noland, Berlin and produced within the context of the curatorial project Mashup the Archive.

Mashup the Archive was a project of the Iwalewahaus, University of Bayreuth, Germany, dedicated to activating and making visible the extensive archive of African art that has been collected over the last thirty years. Working with Sam Hopkins as guest curator, young African artists-in-residence and a series of mini-festivals, the project explored accessible ways for new audiences to experience this rich cultural heritage.

Based on weeks of research in the extensive music archive, DJ Raph’s album fuses traditional and contemporary elements to create a sacred sound. His set will be embedded within other musical talent from Nairobi and followed by a set by Noland labelheads Gebrüder Teichmann from Berlin.

In cooperation with the Goethe-Institute Nairobi, elctronic duo Gebrüder Teichmann put together the initial projects in BLNRB & TEN CITIES. Since 2015 the brothers run NOLAND as a label and platform for electronic music with a transcultural aproach.
It grows from their deep roots in the underground and DIY-culture of the 90s and has been nurtured by recent fertile intercultural projects and collaborations. The Sacred Groves record release party, will be their first appearance back in Nairobi after 7 years.

Admission is free!
