On October 8, Zeyo - rapper, film maker, music producer and activist - will be premiering his debut album, highlighting the social and political climate in Sudan, the sound of resistance and the opposition against the Janjaweed. The government-backed militiamen gained notoriety through the brutal killing of civilians and protestors during the peaceful revolution in 2019. The album is accompanied by a large variety of musicians, together Zeyo is making an offering to the world and social change. For the occasion of the album release, the renowned Sudan-based rapper Wad Almzad will be invited to host and support this premier. Both Zeyo and Wad Almzad represent voices of a Sudanese generation, who are deconstructing and reconstructing the genre of Rap and redefining the Sudanese Rap game. The concert will be moderated by the visual artist and activist Eythar Gubara and accompanied by the Sudanese legend, Elwalid Yousf, and the one and only Sonic In(ter)vention, Berlin-based global trance music formation. Ibrahim Aljrefawi will assist in the technical implementation.
The project has been realized by the support of Civic Lab Sudan and funded by MRI (Martin Roth Initiative), Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung, Bosch Stiftung and Goethe Institute.
The concert will be followed by a panel discussion on Oct 10 and another concert in Pavillon Hannover on Oct 15.
Mustafa Elsiddig, known as Zeyo is a Sudanese national, born in Wad Madani. Zeyo grew up in United Arab Emirates, in the Al-ain. He fell in love with Rap music and started pursuing it when he was 16 years old. At first, he used to write poetry but couldn’t quite grasp the flow. Although he was in love with this art, it was challenging, as he is a stutterer. Until one day he played a beat he found on YouTube, and attempted to rap on it. That’s when he discovered that he can perform, since then he hasn’t stopped.To Zeyo music is a comfort zone. As he had had a tough childhood because of his stuttering condition, he grew to get over it, through making this art. By which he learned some extra skills such as, making beats, video editing and photography. He strives towards transforming any negativity he is subjected to into a solitude that benefits his growth. His goal is to express what he, and others, go through due to freedom suppression practiced by the extremist right wing government in Sudan. He also strives towards establishing a platform in his country, to help revolutionary artists, who are not fortunate enough to practice their artistry, due to the hard living conditions that they go through because of the government.
Khaled Ezzeldeen Osman Farhat, also known as Zangola, or Wad Almzad is born in the United Arab Emirates, has spent most of his life and creative output in Sudan. Having worked as a DJ he received plenty of inspiration from Zeyo and by the development of the Rap scene in Sudan in the years leading up to the peaceful revolution in 2018. That encouraged him to pursue a career as a Rapper and musician. In 2019 he started with simple freestyles, as this was the easiest way for him to spread his message of empowerment, hope, self-worth and community to all the Sudanese people. The concert Zangola held in December 2020 attracted an audience of three thousand fans. The following concerts had to be cancelled due to pandemic reasons and in April 2021 he held his second concert, which was attended by another four thousand fans, gradually growing a considerable following amongst the young Sudanese population. He is currently 28 years old and has his main base in Khartoum, Sudan, but regularly travels to different parts of the world for musical collaborations.

Sonic In(ter)ventions is a weekly jam session of global trance musics. As cultural workers responding to the times with community building, the hosts consciously meld together sound and healing to form 5+ hour sessions of high energy improvisation. Public spaces are reimagined as interactive meditation sites for historical excavation, archival protest, and creative processing. Open and free artistic expressions are cultivated with an intention of decentralizing and celebrating the knowledge production process through action based art forms such as dance and music.
