𝗠𝗖 𝗬𝗔𝗟𝗟𝗔𝗛 & 𝗗𝗘𝗕𝗠𝗔𝗦𝗧𝗘𝗥 live [Nyege Nyege/Hakuna Kulala]
Kenyan by heritage, but born and raised in Kampala, where she is a key member of the big Nyege Nyege crew, incredible rapper MC Yallah has been on the hip-hop scene for nearly 20 years. A combination of conscious and futuristic hip-hop, grime, punk and trap, her signature style is the rare, rapid and tightly controlled flow delivered in one or more languages (Kiswahili, Luganda, English and Luo). Fierce and intense, the lyrics draw from real-life experiences and often address women’s issues spreading a powerful message of integrity and self-determination.
MC Yallah had been bringing heat to international dancefloors such as, among others, Venice Biennale, CTM and Unsound – her show at the Polish Festival was rated in the top five of best performances by Resident Advisor. Her first Hakuna Kulala 11-tracker “Kubali” album with demented productions by Debmaster was featured in The Wire’s top 50 records of 2019, followed by her recent EP with electronic artist Eomac on Phantom Limb plus a collaboration with Dj Die Soon on Morphine Records. MC Yallah also features on Tewari, the new album by Japanese producer Scotch Egg aka Scotch Rolex. Her second full-length album with producer Debmaster is due later this year on Hakuna Kulala. Šelest will be their Czech premiere.
Edúv Syn with his contemporary, critically-acclaimed Slovak trap will join the bill along with Amalgam and his Muslimgauze-only DJ set to open the evening with the view of Prague skyline at one of the most charismatic venues in Prague -Stalin.
