Kampire has been making Ugandan party people dance since 2015. After honing her craft at Hollywood, home of Nyege Nyege Tapes, she opened for Jojo Abot's Kampala Women's Day concert, rocked the Eternal Disco stage at Nyege Nyege International Music Festival in Jinja, and followed The Black Madonna's East African debut, as part of Santuri Safari’s Femme Electronic.

Kampire has been making Ugandan party people dance since 2015. After honing her craft at Hollywood, home of Nyege Nyege Tapes, she opened for Jojo Abot's Kampala Women's Day concert, rocked the Eternal Disco stage at Nyege Nyege International Music Festival in Jinja, and followed The Black Madonna's East African debut, as part of Santuri Safari’s Femme Electronic. In 2017 she has already performed at Amani Festival Goma, Congo, Africa Bass Culture in Burkina Faso and opened for international acts like Diplo and DJ Maphorisa in Uganda.

Kampire's sets perfectly mix nostalgic and contemporary African sensibilities. Her syncopated picks will take the dancer from the Lingala that reminds them of their parents' parties, to the make-your-booty-touch-the-ground songs that remind no one of their parents, to the faster-paced beats from diverse continental and diasporic traditions that will make you forget even yourself.

 

NYEGE NYEGE SHOWCASE FEAT. KAMPIRE & SOUNDS OF SISSO (LIVE)

Making their bow at this year’s No Bounds is one of East Africa’s most enthralling electronic music collectives: Uganada’s Nyege Nyege. The collaborative crew has won praise around the world for their thrillingly open-minded, forward-thinking approach to global musical fusion, which was initially showcased at events in their home city of Kampala and via their associated Nyege Nyege Tapes label. Combining the traditional and contemporary – think soukous and tribal rhythms mixed with elements of techno, hip-hop and abstract electronica – the collective will be represented at No Bounds by the first lady of underground Ugandan dance music, key DJ Kampire, and Tanzanian DJ/production collective Sounds of Sisso, who will be performing a rare live show.
