I followed my talented friend Sofaa Douche while preparing for her last show for the event POESIE INSURRECTIONELLES QUEER. She recently released her latest EP, check it out here.
Yonah and I hanged out with Sophia in the lodge while she got ready. I always love to see artist before their performance, and I miss it myself!
Sophia's concert was in the basement of a shared living space. She makes experimental rap, forest-core rap, where the world of gaming and real life sadness merge.
I love the productions, by Circular Square and sometimes by her partner Martin. It's raw and hard. Yet her voice and lyrics are enchanting - I myself become the main character of the game, entering a forest of her mind.
There was also nice homemade & vegan food and drinks as well, and the person behind the bar was so sweet!
I took some pictures of the other artist Egutchi aswell, who performed in a bedroom vibe setting. The public was also laying on mattrasses, while Egutchi performed in front of what seemed to be the projection of a bedroom window. The songs were meditative, enigmatic and had a melancholic pop-vibe.
The intimacy of the house made it a special event!
