APERTURA DE PUERTAS: 00:30h // DOORS OPEN AT: 00:30h ▪️Nista A wind of change is blowing over the cultural landscape of Kinshasa. An amazing alternative scene is thriving that can’t just be defined or looked at with a western eye as “african music” and even less “world music”… it is explosive and vibrant. These sounds are emanating from the ghetto and downtown clubs in between the Governments imposed power cuts. The artists actually bring something alive, strong new ideas with DIY constructed instruments with a powerful and unique drive. This movement is more expressive, lively and direct compared to most big cities’ scenes, like NYC, London, Berlin… It’s raw and free like NYC in the 70’s and 80’s or Berlin in the 90’s, it’s inventing everything from nothing and it’s happening now. La Belle Kinoise production have been working in Kinshasa with musicians since 2004. The KOKOKO! project was born from a change in mentality and a radicalisation of the people, which we’ve witnessed with our own eyes. With the constant degradation of quality of life, Kinshasa’s youth began to question the taboo of ‘respect for one’s elders’ – denouncing the state of a society paralysed by fear. This spirit of protest is something entirely new. KOKOKO! is the soundtrack of Kinshasa’s tomorrow.

Not many venues in Barcelona (neither in the rest of Europe) can say they have been making their people dance for more than 75 years. Sala Apolo (and its second space, known as La  de Apolo) is one of the most important multidisciplinary spaces in Barcelona. It hosts performances throughout the week, from concerts of all kinds of music genres to night club sessions every night of the week, as well as radio and TV programmes, premieres and other social events related to Barcelona's musical and creative scenes. As we said, the concerts in Sala Apolo and La  de Apolo are of all kinds. However, genres with electronic touches such as electropop, synth-pop and indie-dance are the most common ones. As for the club sessions, Apolo offers a great variety of styles. Each party has its own musical line. On Mondays, Nasty Mondays offers hits, indie-rock and pop. When Crappy Tuesdays opens on Tuesdays, it focuses on the purest indie sound, while Caníbal, on Wednesdays, focuses on the urban sounds such as trap, dancehall, afrobeat and even reggaeton. Cupcake retrieves the pop and commercial sound aiming at university audiences and, during weekends, Nitsa Club brings to Barcelona the best underground electronic producers and DJs of the international scene. Apolo's audience depends a lot on the day and the party. From Monday to Thursday, university students and young people between 18 and 24 are the majority. On Friday and Saturday nights, during the Nitsa Club sessions, electronic music lovers take over both spaces, slightly increasing the average age. Apolo is not rigid with the dress code. The club allows its users to dress as they please. There are no labels or conventions here. Come comfortable and ready to dance until dawn. On the best line-up days, whether it's concert or club nights, Apolo's queues can go on forever, especially if you haven't bought pre-sale tickets. After waiting perhaps for more than 1 hour, you'll end up paying between €10 and €20 at the entrance. On the other hand, if you buy your pre-sale ticket on Xceed, usually for a slightly lower price, you'll get in through a much faster queue. Moreover, the ticket always includes 1 drink! And, you know, Apolo's schedule is the usual one as any club in Barcelona. It opens at 12:30 am and closes at 5 am on weekdays and at 6 am during weekends. Concerts usually take place on weekdays during afterwork hours, around 9 pm. Without a doubt, this is one of the most active venues in Barcelona.
