Concerning

James Stewart has been organizing his Black Atlantic Club nights for several years now. This season, with Opera Underground, he is presenting concerts by musicians from Africa and the African diaspora.
Mark Ernestus, one of the high priests of German techno, has long been fascinated by Senegal’s mbalax. Ndagga is the result of a North-South/Berlin-Dakar collaboration where young Senegalese musicians embrace a kind of cross-fertilization that steers well clear of World Music clichés without falling into the trap of becoming merely electronica with a hint of exoticism. The dub and electronic influence is very present, but here it is interpreted by a live group, seamlessly adapting African rhythms to synthesized marimbas.
