Goethe Zentrum Kampala in collaboration with Femme Electronic, a platform for female DJs and electronic music producers in East Africa, is calling on female DJs and producers in Uganda to register for a workshop taking place on 29 January.
The Femme Electronic workshop is intended to provide insight into the music business by tapping into the knowledge and experience of established DJs and producers. There is no participation fee charged.
Some of the topics to be covered will look at the history of electronic music, women in electronic music, and an introduction to DJ equipment and music production.
The facilitators are DJs Rachael (Uganda), The Cee (Uganda) and M3 (Kenya). The workshop will take place from 9.30am to 5.30pm.
Interested individuals can register by sending a letter of motivation and details about the equipment they have available (laptop, turntables, etc.) to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
Femme Electronic is an initiative of Goethe Zentrum Kampala, Santuri Safari and DJ Rachael. It aims to connect East African women in the field of electronic music to create a strong network of mutual support and introduce them to the various techniques of deejaying and music production.
Participants are usually taken through training, workshops, mentorships, showcases, residencies and events aimed at addressing the severe gender imbalance in the East African music industry and the electronic music scene in particular.
