'This is Not Black'

A weekend jubilee in honour of Africa and the African Diaspora, featuring music, debates, comedy, arts and crafts, dance and fashion. Highlights include a one-off set by Ethiopian vibes maestro Mulatu Astatke, who whips up a simmering blend of Afrobeat grooves, melodic modal jazz and skanking brass (Sep 13, 7.30pm); the world premiere of 'My Exile is in My Head', a collaborative dance and spoken word performance by Qudus Onikeku and Zena Edwards (Sep 11, 7.30pm); and Africa39, a celebration of 39 of the best writers under 40 from sub-Saharan Africa and the diaspora.
