Holly Herndon‘s live show, showcasing her latest album release PROTO, which incorporates an ensemble of 8 vocalists, machine intelligence and learning specialists, choreographers, and visual artists at the Pioneer Works in Brooklyn. Rosalía will bring out a live band, dancers, and promisingly stunning LED visuals for a show in the newly renovated Webster Hall.

A few of the other US and Global musician are JPEGMAFIA, Onyx Collective, Moor Mother, and DJ Kampire, a pioneer of the East African new wave scene. DJ Kampire‘s empire, at home in Uganda, is her impressive work creating safe party spaces for women and the LGBTQ+ community. For this debut show at Black Flamingo, joined by Nyege Nyege Night, MCZO & Duke, and Bearcat, Kampire will spotlight the pan-African sounds made for the dance floor, including but not limited to gqom and afrobeat.
