A core member of the Nyege Nyege Tapes label, the Ugandan artist brings the heat for the festival’s 25th anniversary.

Kampala DJ Kampire came up via Nyege Nyege Tapes, the label and collective that is pushing East African sounds. Deep into a busy summer schedule touring across Europe, she stops by Sónar’s 25th edition for an afternoon set on the festival’s biggest stage. Bigged-up by the energetic crowd, she mixes polyrhythmic percussions with catchy vocals.
