Outernationale II: Amaraae w/ DJ Pam Bam & Florian Sievers

In Nigeria and Ghana, the music-centric alté movement has recently begun to challenge the dominant Afrobeats/Afropop/Afrofusion scene as an underground/DIY counterpart. Ghanaian-American musician and producer Amaarae is part of this exciting young generation of West-African artists, who express their queer identity through music and fashion, using social media and visual aesthetics to connect with their audience – be it inside or outside of their visible borders. Amaarae's sound combines Neo-Soul and African pop, creating an alternative version of contemporary African club music with lyrics revolving around everyday queer intimacy.

Pamela Owusu-Brenyah (DJ Pam Bam) is a music consultant, festival organiser, and DJ, working on an enhanced visibility of contemporary African Pop culture in Germany. With her community platform AFRO x POP she regularly offers a music festival stage for rising artists of the Afro-German scene. Pamela, a studied political scientist, is based in Berlin and has family roots in Ghana. She has worked in Ghana’s capital Accra as a DJ for three years and since then has been commuting back and forth between both musical worlds.

Florian Sievers is a journalist, author, and curator who loves to tell alternative stories from African urban spaces where at present a rising middle class is producing hip cultural expressions, from fashion and art to especially music. Originally a trained journalist for politics and economics, Florian researches his forward-looking stories from the mother continent on at least yearly trips to continuously new African metropolises. On a sideline during these trips Florian has also become a hobby collector of old vinyl records from Africa.
