Soulitude brings urban expression to Geneva
Soulitude Urban Expressions was born in 2015 in its first form as part of the Nuit des Bains programme - a night of art and expression in Geneva.
One year later, Soulitude has already evolved into a full 4-day music and art festival, ready to unite all lovers of urban culture this coming October.
It's being organised by Omar Cee (AKA Ocee) and Solomon (AKA Solo) and a team of international devotees to urban music and art.
This year, they'll be bringing some huge names on the Urban music scene to Geneva, as well as celebrate some local talent. The festival features well-known and emerging artists in the urban genre who will perform in unique and intimate venues in Geneva city centre; Temple Fusterie and the Maison Des Arts du Grütli.
As well as live music and art events, there will also be documentary film nights to give some of the history of hip-hop and soul music.
Festival co-founders Ocee and Solomon join Katt in the studio on the Mid Morning Mix.
Kami Awori (FKA Caramel Brown) are part of the rich programme of artists performing at Soulitude this October.
Although the duo are Swiss, they're currently based in Paris. Before returning to their home country for Soulitude, they caught up with Katt to talk about the evolution of their music, their impossible-to-pin-down genre (although minimalist electro is pretty accurate) and how they use music as a natural response to explore the topics in their lives that matter: They hope that their recent EP 'Lunation', for example, will inspire conversation on the Black Lives Matter movement....
