Venue: Capella MACBA
► 9.00–9.40 pm. Doctor Mackandal (live). Ken Province, a multidisciplinary performer with Haiti ancestry who goes by the name of Doctor Mackandal, has designed a project based on sounds linked to the world of Africa. He uses samples, loops, distortions and images as a free-flowing language to tell stories driven by experimentation and creativity.
► 9.40–10.20 pm. Mbodj. Maguette Dieng (Mbodj) will play a set exploring various ideas linked to neo-colonialism and the political and economic control that Western countries still exert over Africa.
► 10.20–11.20 pm. Ibaaku (live). A leading light on the contemporary Afrofuturist scene, Ibaaku is a visionary Senegalese multi-instrumentalist who classifies himself as an alien, as borne out by his performances. He uses his own sound and visual languages to whisk audiences off to his own universe full of futurist references with a clear African identity.
► 11.20–midnight. Senegalese DJ and Jokkoo cofounder Baba Sy will be on the decks playing cutting-edge music by up-and-coming names on the African scene.
