FAKA is the collective of South African artists and musicians Fela Gucci and Desire Marea. Conceived as a cultural movement with a mission to express the experience of “black queer bodies navigating the ‘cis-hetero-topia’ of post-colonial Africa,” FAKA sees them dabbling in a wide range of artistic expression, from sound and live performance to literature, video and photography. Their musical output draws heavily from gqom, and channels the raw brand of South African house into a daring exploration of love, identity and romance woven through tongue clicks and drum beats.
