POLLINATE @ NHAC: We Don’t Belong In Pacha / Romare / Oya Bun / Moroka
May 29, 2012No Comments
It’s Moroka’s birthday! This Friday! To celebrate he’s invited a few close friends down to play. We Don’t Belong In Pacha is a new solo project by Johan from The Very Best & Radioclit. Long time friend and collaborator with Mo as well as former Arts Club resident at Secousse he set the high level for partying on Fridays at NHAC!
Mo’s second guest is Oya Bun. Palm City Social resident and an insane collection of tunes straight from Africa…expect some super uplifting Kwaito and house and lovely jubbly african rhythms.
Earlier this year we were taken aback by someone called Romare who seemingly sprang out of nowhere with a release on the Black Acre imprint. Spanning its wings across Jazz, Juke, Hip Hop and ‘Meditations On Afrocentrism’ drew connections between “the history of African and African-American culture in the form of collage to create musical conversations between the past, present and future”. And so we were locked and discovered a mix on his Soundcloud that was full of proper jacking afrotronic house. We’ve subsequently invited him to play the next show.
Residents Moroka & Rob Pollinate bring guaranteed hands in the air, feet on the floor, knees up, party party vibes! Expect a blitz through….
