Carte Blanche for Nkisi
Nkisi and guests02 Jul 2021
Melika Ngombe Kolongo, alias Nkisi, was born in the Democratic Republic of Congo and grew up in Belgium. A co-founder of NON Worldwide, a label that promotes musicians from the African diaspora, she always combines political commitment and music, creating spaces where communities that are often deprived of a voice can express themselves.e.
Now a DJ installed in London, she uses sound to explore invisible forces, blending traditional and futuristic sonorities. Her sets are inspired by a large range of influences - from Dutch hard-core to poly-rhythmic South African house - and profoundly reflect these sources of inspiration in order to form an experience of jubilant and uninhibited dance. For her Carte Blanche presented at the Centre Pompidou, she invited musician, artist and sound-creator friends for a unique evening beginning with a DJ set in the Forum and concluding with a concert in the Grande Salle.
