Ten Cities


TEN CITIES – Clubbing in Nairobi, Cairo, Kyiv,​ Johannesburg, Berlin, Naples, ​Luanda, Lagos, Bristol, Lisbon​ 1960 – March 2020​



»Ten Cities tells the story of club music and club cultures in ten urban centres across Africa and Europe from 1960 to March 2020. It looks beyond the North Atlantic locations that are usually assumed to be the main focus of attention and sets out to put together a more inclusive narrative. Bringing clubs to the fore as nocturnal laboratories for different ways of life, the book portrays the cities’ music subcultures in twenty-one essays, playlists, and photo sequences – before COVID-19 impacted creative communities worldwide. It is a retrospective testimony to their living spirit, a rhythmanalysis mediated by sound and night.«
