‘Legacy Systems’

Chino Amobi, Nkisi + Angel-Ho @ New Museum, May 20

20 May 2016

NON Records founders Chino Amobi, Nkisi and Angel-Ho are performing together for the first time at New York’s New Museum on May 20.

The event, titled ‘Legacy Systems’ will see the three producers performing separately, then as a trio in a show themed around borderless “NON citizenry”, challenging “binaries and boundaries across virtual and physical realms”. The multinational collective will present a video work constructed from signifiers of corporate brand identity and militant solidarity, using music as “a weapon to destabilize and de-territorialize [their] audience”.

Respectively based in three parts of the world —including the US, UK and South Africa —Chino Amobi Nkisi and Angel-Ho connected online to run NON, an online music label dedicated to promoting African and diaspora artists. As well as releasing their own music, they’ve also dropped the likes of N-Prolenta, E-Jane  and GAIKA, either as single releases or on their WORLDWIDE COMPILATION, VOL. 1..
