Goethe-Zentrum Kampala is gearing up to host “Mirembe Rhythm,” which is sure to be an energizing and unifying dance party offering a music mix, especially featuring Electronic Dance Music (EDM) and female DJs centre stage. The event will showcase both local and international DJs at The Square, 3rd Street in Industrial Area, on 12th October, from 6pm ‘til late. Mirembe Rhythm is 5k entry only.
Mirembe Rhythm is a DJ concert and dance party that will feature guest DJ Sarah Farina and music producer and DJ Yo van Lenz from Germany alongside prominent Electronic Dance Music (EDM) DJs from Uganda like Hakuna Kulala, Catu Diosis, DJ Rachael, The Control Posse (an EDM/Hip Hop Fusion collective of MCs and a DJ), and Kampala’s much loved dancehall spinner, DJ Ciza.
The event will offer a blend of EDM, Hip Hop and dancehall, foreign and local, to create a fun and peace- loving vibe for everyone to enjoy. “Mirembe (Peace) Rhythm” represents positivity, peace and unity, music/dance fun and positive vibes!
Sarah Farina and Yo Van Lenz
Both featured foreign artists are certified members of the ‘Through My Speakers’ collective, an international group of friends whose similar mindset, passion and commitment to music organically evolved into an event night and its own label with a common goal to bring people together. Through My Speakers is also about breaking boundaries in club music, bringing people together and creating a musical journey for the crowd.
With 10 years of bonding over the love of their similar influences, Sarah and Yo’s enthusiasm to explore, from club tunes to psychedelic guitars, is infectious. And there is no indication of them slowing their creative flow.
In June 2018, they released the collaborative album, PEACE DUB, which reflects their ethos to create spaces that feel free of bias or judgment, in real life and online, and to elevate well-being, physically and digitally.
