Nyege Nyege formed as a club night in Kampala with the aim to create a space where homegrown, East African DJs, musicians and artists could take risks playing a wide range of sounds in a safe and supportive environment; a place where like-minded people could hang out and enjoy music, share ideas and become friends.
The motivations behind the night, and the emergence of a community around it, form the basis for every subsequent project, including a music festival, a professional community recording studio and residency space and two record labels all integrated into a holistic incubation platform to support the underground music community.
Using their collective expertise to produce, programme and curate, Nyege Nyege is focused on exploring new, boundary-pushing ways to platform and champion an emerging generation of creatives from Africa.


The lecture is a part of the online course TIM Master Class taught within Theory of Interactive Media MUNI and also part of the series Videogram at FFA BUT under the auspices of Department of Audiovisual Technology. Further programme at www.videogram.favu.vut.cz

The lecture will take place online through the ZOOM platform.
