About the concert
BlackKaji returns with an inauspicious detour into the deeper recesses of sound. A subterranean maze of forking paths bunkered away from the homogenous harmonies broadcasted above. In the history of modern music, there has always been diversions, collisions and mutations that have subverted the given order and mandate of popular music in pursuit of new musical expressions. This edition of BlackKaji features a diverse lineup of musicians and bands working in this tradition of discord, harnessing the dissonant and visceral potentialities of sound, conjuring uncanny and harrowing mythologies and visions – towards a collective inversion of musical pleasure. We hope to see you all there!
