LSFF 2020: Baloji: Live

baloji rich mix

''I see music in colours. I have synaesthesia, so whatever I do I see colours and atmosphere. It's obsessive." - Baloji

Belgian-Congolese musician BALOJI fronts the five-piece L'orchestre de la Katuba, performing his distinctively heady mix of politicised synthetic afrobeats and electronic rap live.

A multiform artist also working with film, the performance will be preceded by a programme of his genre-bending short works.
