African Beats & Pieces | Nigerian Classics & Rarities

  • Wo? Monarch Bar, Skalitzerstr. 134, 10997 Berlin
  • Wann?
African Beats & Pieces ★ is a monthly event series at Monarch Berlin dedicated to the music of Africa and its diaspora.

With a special focus on contemporary and lesser-known artists, we strive to showcase the diversity of sounds and songs the continent has to offer, doing so through theme-specific parties involving passionate diggers & DJs.

Wow, already ?.. This will be the "last" party of our 2017/2018 season before we take a summer break and come back in late August!

After focusing on specific areas of Africa (or even ALL of the continent for our very first party!) throughout our first year, we're happy to now hold a party dedicated to the musical output of one single country: NI-GE-RIA ! "Just Enjoy Yourself !" is a common motto used daily by Nigerians and we'll do our best to provide the soundtrack to exactly do that indeed ;)

We're super happy to welcome for this occasion the mighty DJ collective MogaDisco from London, who have been spreading Africa's finest sounds in the U.K. since 2012!

While most of our selection will explore Nigeria's rich musical heritage (Juju, Fuji, Afro-Funk, Apala, Hausa Hip-Hop, High-Life, Afrobeat, Palm-Wine...) some tracks will also showcase the new exciting sounds that have been pouring out of the country for the past decade : indeed, it would be hard not to quote our favourite Afrobeats pop hits when speaking of Naija music!

We strive to bring you here what the locals dance(d) to there!
♬ Come with an open mind & leave with sore feet ♬
