In the spirit of these days we post this radio mix ‘Global Dub Resistance’ from DJ Zhao and Ngoma Sound at Reboot FM, Berlin. It is one of the many posts that have been long stuck in Freegan Kolektiva’s pipeline but we still believe is relevant. Enjoy this bass-laden two-hour trip to different places of resistance around the world, in the Arab region and elsewhere in Africa and Asia:
It is a call for cultural awakening and resistance. Inspired by the people of Tahrir square, this music is dedicated to all the writhing people worldwide and the courageous ones who stand up against political oppession, cultural hegemony, appropriation of natural resources and all forms of exploitation.
For the billions that are kept poor, hungry and deprived of any opportunities for individual development. We are actually all deprived of a free choice to a prosperous future: a healthy community to live within a robust environment.
An emerging culture is then responsible for shifting the contours of development, from individual transformation to a larger transition towards a resilient, diverse and self-determined world. Emerging culture(s) is not centered, it is diffused, decentralized and will rise from any given point, where conditions are favourable.
Ngoma sound is a musical collective dedicated to unearthing music from all around the world’s cultures like African tribal, Kuduro, Rai, Chaabi as fused with contemporary bass music. They keep on exploring different sounds in an intensive pace always coming with really diverse musical outputs whether they are compilations, mixtapes or radio shows. Ngoma are exploring a flexible and always shifting musical field in their live performances between improvisation and electronic composition.
