In collaboration with the Goethe-Institut, BlackKaji mutates into its most provocative bumper edition to date with BlackKajiXtra – Nusasonic. Featuring two packed nights of music and discourse, this edition is part of Nusasonic, a cultural programme that adopts a multi-perspective approach, exploring how contemporary sound practices enable connections and dialogues within the Southeast Asian region, and with Europe.

Nusasonic – Crossing Aural Geographies is an initiative of Goethe-Institut Southeast Asia and is a collaboration between CTM Festival (Berlin), Yes No Klub (Yogyakarta), WSK Festival for the Recently Possible (Manila), and Playfreely/BlackKaji (Singapore). The project kicked-off with a two week long Artistic Lab and Festival in Yogyakarta in October 2018.

BlackKaji is a series conceived by The Observatory and Ujikaji. A study of the unseen, unsound, unsuspecting, unsustainable, unstable
