Bizarre Music Festival
29.Oktober 2021 17:00 - 22:00
"In light of the heavy restrictions the cultural sector has experienced due to the Covid 19 pandemic and the political response to it, playing in front of people again feels many kinds of strange by now.
As artists we get a lot of from these exchanges, at the same time we also give much of ourselves – this is the symbiosis and synthesis of energy that makes the space vibrate higher.
Not having this exchange for so long left many of us drained and weakened, wondering about our role in a society without public gatherings. We want to dedicate this festival to ourselves, the artist who give so much of themselves. We also want to use this opportunity to turn the camera back on the audience to capture their joy and energetic participation and we’d like the documentation to reflect this very important synergy between artist and audience."
Bizarre Music Fest will bring on stage international musicians of all origins who have chosen Berlin as their city of heart. Get ready for an evening full of music you never heard before, music that is the fruit of diversity, travel, sometimes even uprooting. Prepare yourself for real musical hugs!

He now uses these experiences and feelings in his creative process as musician who fuses traditional sounds form Algeria and the African continent with contemporary electronic musics and aesthetics. “Ancient cyborg” is the preferred mood-board Kerim uses for his creations combining live looping, self-made instruments, melancholic vocal lines and thick synth bass grooves.
