OLUZAYO Clubnight – Catu Diosis, Jay Mitta & Kadilida, Hibotep, Dope Gal Soundsystem
The OLUZAYO club night, co-hosted by Cologne’s nascent international Dope Gal soundsystem, features female artists, MCs and dancers from Africa and the African diaspora.
Hibotep and Cologne-based Catu Diosis come from the underground of Kampala with the highly virulent festival and production platform Nyege-Nyege. Her DJ sets are sometimes raw, always exciting and full of positive exploratory energy and curiosity. Two special live acts add spice to the already exciting program: Jay Mitta, one of Tanzania’s most exciting producers of hyper-fast explosive singeli-trance music, will perform with the powerful MC Kadilida, and the evening’s co-hosts Catu Diosis and Oh Lorena will bring several dancers as Dope Gal Magic. The program can change at short notice – and then becomes even more exciting.
