MC Waraba & Mélèké Tchatcho
Donnerstag // 12. Dezember 2019 // 22:00h
African Beats & Pieces is an event series dedicated to the music made in Africa and throughout its diaspora.
With a special focus on contemporary and lesser-known artists, we strive to showcase the diversity of sounds and songs the continent has to offer, doing so through theme-specific parties involving passionate diggers & DJs.
We are proud and happy to welcome Malian pioneers of the “Balani Show” Mc Waraba & Mélèké Tchatcho for their very first concert in Berlin.
Powered by a production featuring traditional instruments and coating their voices in gorgeous Auto-Tune, their high-energy songs are an explosive mix in which centuries-old Mandingue music collides with fierce Hip-Hop, sweet Afrobeats and upbeat Electro.
Raising their vocal fists against local plagues such as corruption and skin bleaching, the two rappers carry the electrified voice of a youth eager to get heard and ferociously update their country’s musical heritage.
The after-party DJ sets will feature treasures from the African underground hand-picked by Dom Peter (Blanc Manioc).
