Ten Cities 

From 2012 – 2014 the Ten Cities project brought together 50 arists from ten african & european cities. Recording sessions, collaborations, partys and concerts took place in Berlin, Bristol, Cairo, Johannesburg, Kyiv, Lagos, Lisbon, Luanda, Nairobi & Naples. The musical outcome was released on a triple vinyl album on Soundway Records UK.

The idea went on and various collaborations made their own way on records, projects & concerts and inspired artists and scenes involved. 29.11.2019 we´ll bring back the spirit and celebrate it with a TEN CITIES jam at Yaam Berlin.

Berlin´s electronic wizards Gebrüder Teichmann will play a liveset together with Yoruba percussionist and singer Wura Samba (Kazia Jones, ua.)
