After 3 years of creative block and paralysis, we are back!
The incredible DJ coco-Em will be our first guest and if that isn’t a good omen, I don’t what is.
For those of you not familiar with her work, here is a little summary:
Dj coco.em is a professional DJ based in Nairobi Kenya. She plays a wide variety of genres ranging from hip hop to afro house, kuduro, kwaito, lingala and reggae dub music. Her eclectic sets have earned her performances at large music platforms such as Afro punk festival in Johannesburg where she was the first Kenyan to perform on an Afro Punk stage, Boiler room + True Music Africa Nairobi stage, Glastonbury’s Beat hotel festival in Marrakech, The Nyege Nyege festival in Uganda as well as Terra Negra in Tunisia. This year coco.em also performed in Niger for the Doo 4 Love mini festival and is set to make her European debut, playing at the 5th edition of Afrodyssee in Switzerland on the 15th of June. Every set coco.em plays is exciting and introduces new audiences to new music which is quite the show.
Keep an eye out for the episode which will be up on June 7th.
In the meantime, enjoy this great promo mix she put together ahead of the event ‘Terra Negra’ held every month in Tunis.
