Moderator: Bogomir Doringer (Curator & Researcher, Nxt Museum)
Nsasi, often dubbed the Enfant Terrible of Uganda's underground music scene and a Nyegenyege regular, has fearlessly forged their own path, drawing inspiration from the provocative pop sensation Tshala Muana of the scandalous 1980s. Their music, an audacious fusion of traditional rhythms and cutting-edge compositions, effortlessly traverses genres and tempos, creating a mesmerizing sonic landscape where acid-infused beats collide with Kiganda percussion and East African Trap. As a founding member of the Anti Mass collective, Nsasi continues to push boundaries and captivate audiences with a fluid style.
For this session at ADE Lab, the artist will explore the impact that the current state in Uganda has had on the artistic process, and the emotions that are communicated by the work which reflect on the reality of the queer community in Uganda.
During this exploration, together with Nxt Museum its artistic curator Bogomir Doringer, we'll open the conversation on this creative journey, Uganda's current situation, and the collective's fundraising efforts, all while emphasizing the importance of authenticity and unity in the artistic community. Join this session on a journey of self-discovery through sound, and might take some insights away on how you could find your own!
