The Black & African Solidarity Show: Volume II


We celebrated B.A.S.S. vol. II in Peckham on Sunday, 9 February 2020. The jam-packed night featured Dj sets, presentations and performances from Wahalaa, Natasha Mutebi, Vanessa Tsehaye, Indigo Prxject, Adam Ouissellat, Shamanie, Arun Janssens & Dequez. It was pure energy and happiness all evening as the incredible talent of our community was on full display.


Feven’s family provided us with homemade Eritrean food to nourish our bodies as the vibe nourished our souls.

The Black and African Solidarity Show (B.A.S.S.) is a platform, curated for and by Black minds, which holds love, creativity and education at its core. The community is cultivated through grassroots organizing within our networks of artists and academics. B.A.S.S., as a sphere of interaction, intends to support meaningful connections and give stage for individuals of our communities to share what they have discovered along their paths.

Through the unity of our diversity, we exist as a transcultural representation of Blackness. Our mission is to uplift and provide platforms for artists across the world as we calibrate our trajectories for radically different futures.

Holding Space for Black Joy celebrates the journey of B.A.S.S. and some of the stellar individuals that constitute our community. As a collective force, we work to sustain an atmosphere in which Blackness, as our humanity, can be nurtured and appreciated.
