Aho Ssan

Paris-based Niamké Désiré made waves with latest album under the Aho Ssan moniker ‘Rhizomes’ which involved a huge list of contributors including Moor Mother, Angel Bat Dawid, clipping., Blackhaine and Nicolás Jaar. The recently-debuted ‘Rhizomes’ live show is an audiovisual collaboration with Barcelona based multidisciplinary artist Sevi Iko Dømochevsky.


Penumbra is an experimental performance created by vocalist Dali de Saint Paul, electronic composer and double bassist Maxwell Sterling, and visual artists Charlie Hope and Rebecca Salvadori.

Emerging from a collaborative process during a series of shared sessions, it comprises improvised music and sound structured by a prepared score composed of video and lighting elements.
