Nihiloxica – video interview and reportage with A4

Nihiloxica – video interview and reportage with A4

Nihiloxica is a project that harnesses the full force of the ancient Bugandan drumming tradition of Uganda and focuses it on the contemporary dance floor through a dark lens of techno sensibility.

Formed by UK musicians Spooky-J & pq and members of the Nilotika Cultural Ensemble, incubated in Kampala by acclaimed label Nyege Nyege Tapes, the cross-continental band explore the common ground between techno and tradition, a conversation between two cultures with a common aim: to make people dance. They’ve been tearing apart dance floors and festivals across the world with an at once transcendental and earth-shattering live show.

The video is produced by A4 as a part of New Perspectives for Action. A project by Re-Imagine Europe, co-funded by the European Union and supported using public funding by Slovak Arts Council and Bratislava City Foundation.
