FREIER EINTRITT (KOLLEKTE)
Intergalactic shape-shifting kwaai diva Umlilo is an innovative genre and gender-bending multidisciplinary artist in music, fashion, 3D animation, VR, visual art and performance. The queer performer/music producer’s signature sound dubbed ‘future kwaai’ explores and pushes the boundaries of electronic music, kwaito, alt-pop music in contemporary South Africa and has been a regular fixture in the international music community.
She has exhibited at Vitra Design Museum’s traveling exhibition titled “Making Africa: A Continent of Contemporary Design (Europe), Goethe Institute Archive of Forgetfulness exhibition and coffee table book (South Africa), Explode! Exhibition in São Paulo, Brazil, Kunstegewerbemuseum at Berlin’s Museum of Decorative Arts (Germany) and Kunst Museum Villa Straueli (Winterthur, Switzerland) and OneBeat Virtual 1-3 online exhibition and performance (Virtual USA).
Umlilo merges an avant-garde aesthetic with technology, visual art, dance, film, XR, digital art and fashion design. She has released three acclaimed visual EP’s that have been playlisted worldwide, and received over a half a million streams online, and featured across film, art, literature, fashion, and music platforms. Umlilo has toured internationally in the USA, Europe, and South America. She has also worked with institutions like Prohelvetia, Goethe, OneBeat USA, Electric South and many more. In 2022, she completed a three-month music residency in Zurich, Switzerland, collaborating with local artists. Her latest VR-360 music video Bhuti was nominated for a Fakugezi Award in 2022, and she completed the OneBeat X tour in New Mexico, USA.
Aufgrund der Absage der Band Lévinoque für das Konzert am Donnerstag, 25. Mai hat uns Umlilo angeboten ein weiteres Datum zu ihrer Album-Release-Tour durch die Schweiz für das neue Album Mpumi anzusetzen.
Wie immer bieten wir euch vor dem Konzert Verköstigung mit kleinen Speisen und Getränken an.
Wir freuen uns auf euch!
Euer Team kleiner Wassermann
