WARA

Playing deep into the rhythms of urban Latin America, WARA is an award-winning musical outfit that fuels its signature sound with bass-heavy dembow, biting synths and hip-hop.

Led by producer and composer Eliane Correa, the band formed in 2010, and has since become known for powering a Latin American narrative that celebrates regional music cultures such as mambo and cumbia. With backgrounds spanning from Cuba to Congo, Venezuela and Chile, WARA’s performances are a musical homage to their heritage; provocative and potent, a Pan-Latin powerhouse that’s paving a way of its own.

Kallemi (كلّمي)

Born on the path between Basel and Ramallah, Kallemi emerged from a collaborative musical project between Swiss, Dominican and Palestinian musicians. Blending deep buttery beats with world influenced percussions, dipped in distorted unapologetic guitars – soulful, delicate yet fierce singing added with Arabic, English and Latino hip-hop.

Starting as an exchange project initiated by Kaserne Basel in 2018, the group first met in Ramallah and worked intensely focusing on a one-time show. Yet as soon as they finished their performance in Basel, it was clear for everyone that the project would not stop here.

This event is 16+. Under 18s to be accompanied by a guardian.

ULU is wheelchair accessible.

This evening is hosted by MARSM and Movimientos, and sponsored by War on Want and Alaraby TV.

War on Want will be showcasing our work fighting the root causes of global poverty, inequality and injustice. Join the fight today.
