Performance / Concert by Chino Amobi (US)
Curated by Philipp Cron (CH)
Born to Nigerian parents and based in Virginia, USA, Chino Amobi – alongside his counterparts, Congolese-Belgian, Nkisi, and Portuguese-South African, Angel Ho – forms NON: a collective of African artists, and of the diaspora, using sound as their primary media, to articulate the visible and invisible structures that create binaries in society, and in turn distribute power.
Key releases include the critically acclaimed full length debut Paradiso, the follow up from the vital Airport Music for Black Folk, which presented a radical perspective on contemporary electronic music, and impressions of the airport as an international space and yet a totally Eurocentric & Western manicured experience; and the Izlamic Europe collaboration with Rabit. Amobi weaves music and politics in a way other artists of his generation didn’t and don’t dare, exemplifying his strengths in providing unified themes and subversive insight to the wider consciousness.
Recent presentations include Boiler Room MoMA New York, Knockdown Center New York, Berghain Berlin, CTM Festival Berlin, Unsound Krakov
