Opla - the new duo of Hubert Zemler and Piotr Bukowski - open the first evening in Manggha with their modern interpretations of oberek, a traditional Polish dance, drawing on its trance-like qualities. Following the release of her critically acclaimed album Caligula, Lingua Ignota combines neoclassical music, black metal and noise to tell a personal story of abuse, rage and survival. Jonathan Uliel Saldanha’s HHY & The Macumbas from Portugal, join forces with HHY & The Kampala Unit, another band he formed in Uganda in 2018. Together they will explore dark, ritualistic corners of dub and jazz music.
Jonathan Uliel Saldanha of HHY is supported by the SHAPE Platform.
