Tanzanian duo Bamba Pana and Makaveli are two pioneering artists from one of the world’s most exhilarating electronic music scenes. Born and raised in the outskirts of Dar Es Salaam, and mainstays of the capital’s revered Sisso studio, the producer and rapper serve up their own take on a high-octane genre of music called singeli. Rocketing forth at a blistering 180 bpm, their songs combine defiant, satirical lyrics about everything from police corruption to dating while broke with a frenetic mix of Zanzibari taraab, South African house, noise, gabber and happy hardcore.


In its third edition, Lorem Ipsum persists in delving into the cracks and folds of both the musical and the ludic, intentionally articulated from the geo- and biopolitics of bodies and gestures. Where do we speak from? Who speaks? Perhaps we are moving away from the kind strangeness with which we operated on previous occasions, to articulate it politically: listening to new female voices, embracing otherness, (con)fusing sensibilities, temporalities and geographies... From the perspective of what is (almost or very) danceable.
