Sat 5 Nov | 20:30-1:00 | Upstairs at the Ritzy BOOK NOW
Tickets are £6. Free entry for Roaring Abyss ticket holders [subject to availability].
Join us to celebrate another wonderful year of discovery, lively debate, family fun, industry insight, awards and parties at Film Africa! This year’s closing party is in partnership with Upstairs at the Ritzy’s monthly afro-centric music night and will follow the screening of Roaring Abyss; a film by Sheba Sound and Solysombra Recordings, documenting the recording of little known groups and singers all over Ethiopia.
Fresh from Ethiopia, DJ Yonatan warms up the night with original Ethio-funk vinyl, alongside JUJU’s resident host DJ Volta 45. Plus, a live PA showcasing exclusive Sheba Sound recordings from Ethiopia (depicted in the documentary) featuring guest singers and dancing from the award-winning Dan-Kira (meaning dancing rhythmically by hitting the ground with your feet). The original recordings from Ethiopia have received mixing treatment from world renowned producer, Nick Manasseh. Get ready for a deluge of limited ethio dubs, live vocals and dancing!
