In Parallel

Doors: 23:59, Main programme: 23:59

Showcasing Afro-electronic sounds and rhythms from all corners of the globe, NYC-based DESCENDANTS returns to Parallel after a stunning debut edition in April and a big ADE celebration in October. Back again: this time with another stacked line up featuring local and international talents. For this edition they invited the award nominated South African Dance Music Duo Kususa with a dark and edgy Afro-Tech/House sound. As well as Nairobi-based Coco Em with a sound that moves through Afro House, Kuduro, Lingala, Hip-Hop and more. In addition to Sky White from Mozambique, Descendants-founder Meedy from New York and local hero Inkedrebelle.

With a sound that moves easily through afro house, kuduro, lingala, hip-hop and more, ABOUT DESCENDANTS:
