Delving further into the electronic music community fringe areas is Perlon artist Maayan Nidam by way of her involvement in Open Culture Lab. After The Ghost initiative, a new collaboration is set by Open Music Lab, which will see a series of open-air events designed to demystify musical diversity within our scene by way of insightful panel discussions from a variety of artists, activists and influential members of the music industry.
The first musical meet up will take place in Berlin on Monday, July 20th, and will centre around African musical heritage and culture. The open-air event will feature a discussion panel that will be held by Yoyaku Agency’s Tracy Bakala, RISE promoter Mista Wallizz and Berlin-based artist Ukai Ndame where dialogue will be exchanged on the groups’ experience in the organising of music, their collective and individual African music heritage and their culture. In a time where safe creative environments are not readily available for refugees, asylum seekers, people who identify as female*, non-binary and LGBTQI+ and people of colour non-profit organisation Open Music Lab has identified this issue and offers these services free of charge on a regular basis.
As well as the music industry discourse the first event will also feature a music production workshop led by South African artist Floyd Lavine. During this session, Floyd will be imparting his knowledge on all manner of studio techniques that has employed to help shape his groove led Afro sound. Completing the program of events will be Dede, who will perform a DJ set.
