Bar Laika presents: Satellite 11 in collaboration with 3afak: Muqata’a and Bergsonist

Muqata’a

Join us at Bar Laika for the eleventh edition of Satellite, featuring a live performance by Muqata’a and a DJ set by Bergsonist. 
 
Muqata'a is an electronic musician and MC based in Ramallah, Palestine. His music, which ranges from harsh beats, abstract tones, and glitch, is partly created through sampling vintage Arab records and the urban landscape of Ramallah. Muqata’a co-founded Ramallah Underground Collective, which toured extensively across the Arab world, Europe, and Australia, until they split up in 2009. Muqata'a is a member of Tashweesh, a sound and image based performance group, alongside artists Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahme. He has released several solo albums including: Inkanakuntu (2018) on Discrepant, Dubt Al-Ghubar (2017) on Third Type Tapes, La Lisana Lah (2017), and Hayawan Nateq (2013). Muqata’a has scored several films and dance performances.
 
Bergsonist is a New York–based artist and musician originally from Morocco. She is the founder of Bizaarbazaar, a music platform and publication that publishes podcasts and interviews by DJs and producers from around the world. Under the guise Bergsonist (derived from Deleuze's Bergsonism), she uses a variety of media to investigate social resonance through divergent conceptual aesthetics (minimalism, techno, and music concrete, to name a few). Through her work, she explores notions of identity, memory, and social politics. Bergsonist is a cofounder of 3afak, a collective that aims to empower Arab women’s creative vision in New York. 
  
Satellite is a monthly experimental music series curated by Sanna Almajedi.
