Beschreibung des Events
At the end of August, we will present three different concerts at MaHalla in Oberschöneweide.

Zu diesem Event

Our August at MaHalla will be held in the vast, 3000 qm former turbine hall, once part of the AEG (General Electricity Company). The colossal turbine hall is located in the historic industrial landscape southeast of Berlin that inspired Fritz Lang's iconic masterpiece ‘Metropolis’.

► We are happy to present the Berlin premiere of Amanar and their contemporary version of classic Malian Tuareg guitar music, storying telling electronic music composer Hüma Utka, and Serge Modular synthesizer mastermind Thomas Ankersmit.

→Based in Kidal in the extreme Northeast of Mali, the heart of Azawad, Amanar plays a contemporary version of the classic Tuareg guitar. Often referred to as the “desert blues'' sound, Amanar is at the forefront of the modern avant-garde interpretation. Moving from the wistful nostalgia of their predecessors, their fast interpretation of desert blues draws from a menagerie of influences. Their guitars are mixed with percussion and flute, with an introduction of drum kits, electric piano, and elements of rap. Yet above all, it is a sound that remains rooted in Kidal.

→Hüma Utku, a Berlin based İstanbulite, is an electronic music composer and sound artist. Utku combines her musical practice with her academic studies in psychology through her works drawing inspiration from human condition, psychology and folklore. With an overall disregard for genres, she utilises melody and sound as tools for storytelling. Her 2018 release "Şeb-i Yelda" EP and her 2019 debut album "Gnosis", via Karlrecords, earned Utku recognition for her unique approach of storytelling through electronic music. Utku has been selected as a SHAPE 2021 artist.

→Thomas Ankersmit is a musician and sound artist based in Berlin and Amsterdam. He plays the Serge Modular synthesizer, both live and in the studio, and collaborates with artists like Phill Niblock and Valerio Tricoli. His music is released on the Shelter Press, PAN, and Touch labels, and combines intricate sonic detail and raw electric power, with a very physical and spatial experience of sound. Acoustic phenomena such as infrasound and otoacoustic emissions (sounds emanating from inside the head, generated by the ears themselves) play an important role in his work, as does a deliberate, creative misuse of the equipment.

Last season, our shows sold out quickly, so we recommend securing your tickets early to avoid disappointment. Do not buy second-hand tickets from strangers – there are scammers around. As part of our safety first policy, tickets are only available via Eventbrite. There is no box office or guest list. Due to the pandemic, changes may be made at short notice. In the event of any changes, we will inform you by E-Mail.

The Kiezsalon has offered a forum for innovative musical activity beyond genre boundaries. As an interface between avant-garde, advanced pop music and interdisciplinary art, the series presents compact shows of 30 minutes by artists of diverse genres, origin and status.

Please be aware that format of the event and venue arrangements have been adapted to maximize safety, and we have created a strict Kiezsalon hygiene and safety policy.

The Kiezsalon is a project by Digital in Berlin, curated by Michael Rosen and funded by Senate Department for Culture and Europe.
