Rokolectiv x Control w/ FAKA live, Lili Putana, Aleksa Alaska
Founded in 2015 by Fela Gucci and Desire Marea, Johannesburg-based duo FAKA’s work spans art, photography, and performance, but it’s for their music they’re best known. Fusing elements of traditional South African Zulu sound with innovative, pounding electronic beats, the pair also founded inclusive club night Cunty Power, and use their platform to amplify the voices of the country’s LGBTQ+ scene.
Their hybridised mode of practice and challenging subject matter as artists has lead them to being invited to perform at various international festivals – such as the 9th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art (2016); Unsound Festival Poland (2016); FLOW Festival (2017), and Digging the Global South (2017) amongst many others.
This event takes place in the larger frame of the project “(Un)Immersed” with events planned throughout September and October, in Bucharest.
