Nyege Nyege Tapes Showcase

Friday, 29 March
Paard II

The latest talent to emerge from East Africa’s flourishing electronic music scene is Kampire, a Ugandan DJ, writer and core member of the Nyege Nyege Tapes collective. Fascinated by the intersection of classical East African musics like Lingala and soukous with Western electronic music, she blends a diverse array of continental and diasporic traditions into a powerful, bass-heavy style that is distinctly her own.

Performing at Rewire 2019 as part of the Nyege Nyege Tapes showcase, she’s joined by fellow label artists Bamba Pana & Makaveli and Otim Alpha.
