Nyege Nyege UG : Aunty Rayzor + Phelimuncasi + DJ PÖ – OPENING WEEK

Nyege Nyege takes over the dance floor at ALICE

Get a physical sense of the African diaspora’s innovative electronic music scene as the forward-thinking collective and record label Nyege Nyege takes over the dance floor at ALICE, presenting the uncompromising Nigerian rap star Aunty Rayzor, Phelimuncasi’s dance ecstatic protest music, and DJ PÖ, who has a declared mission to make you dance until you forget your name.

Nyege Nyege – which means “an uncontrollable urge to dance” in Uganda’s main language, Ganda – is both a record label, a collective, and an event organizer that hosts an ecstatic festival in an abandoned tourist resort by the banks of the Nile. Over the years, Nyege Nyege has turned Kampala into a hub for some of the most innovative electronic music of today, both in the East African region and globally. Nyege Nyege brings together local underground music from the streets and clubs as well as intriguing sounds from the entire African diaspora, such as trap, footwork, Tanzanian polyrhythms, Ugandan wedding songs, and hard trance. With a stream of excellent releases, Nyege Nyege is one of the most vital and forward-thinking music environments right now.

Aunty Rayzor
Nigerian rap star Aunty Rayzor delivers razor-sharp precision and relentless beats. Her track “Kuku Corona” became Nigeria’s anthem during the pandemic, and she has performed at major festivals and arenas despite her young age. Aunty Rayzor’s strong flow, uncompromising charisma, and collaborations with producers like Debmaster and Rey Sapienz have propelled her as one of Nigeria’s most hyped rappers. Aunty Rayzor tore up the audience at Roskilde Festival last year and is now ready to take over ALICE.

Dance ecstasy and glowing revolutionary spirit! Influenced by the rhythmically potent gqom and toyi-toyi movement against apartheid, the South African trio Phelimuncasi pours out radical dance protest music. Insistent grooves fill the sonic landscape, urging for change through a blend of rap, mantra-like call-response choruses, and spoken word. Phelimuncasi released their first album on Nyege Nyege in 2020 and delivered an unforgettable performance at Roskilde Festival last year.

PÖ brings an electronic synthesis of sounds from Mali, Ghana, and Uganda and has a declared mission to make you dance until you forget your own name. The French-Ghanaian DJ has long been a fixture at Nyege Nyege, and it went completely bananas when she played a sold-out show as part of the Gong Tomorrow Festival in 2021.
