In a nutshell
A night of eclectic African inspired music delivered in an evocative manner
SoundThread and Afro-Pop Live wanted to turn the streets of Lagos into a recording studio. With the help of the British Council, and in partnership with Goethe-Institute, their GidiJand pop-up recording project was realised. Be it in the markets, at the traffic intersections, and many other public spaces, their portable recording studio (housed in an old ‘molue’ bus) was met with wonder, intrigue and excitement.
The Gidijand project gathered musicians, rappers, vocalists, instrumentalists, DJs, and spoken word artists handpicked by Afro-Pop Live to create a musical journey and give performances in unique spaces around one of Africa’s most vibrant cities. The roster of musicians/artists ranged from the iconic to emerging new talent who fully committed to and collaborated in the creative process.
Now, GidiJand will be reignited in the UK to complete the journey: the ying to the yang, the Jand to the Gidi. The organisers will reunite some of the project’s artists who will perform, and run workshops at Rich Mix, Hoxton Hall and SOAS.
