Despite autumn temperatures in Berlin, this year´s Wassermusik Festival at Haus Der Kulturen Der Welt (“House Of World Cultures”) is something you shouldn´t miss when you live in Berlin or pass the German capitol within the next weeks. This year´s edition is entitled “South_South” and imagines a world without the North – without the influence of the European powers, who, to this day, continue to dictate the flow of material and immaterial goods into and out of the former colonies.

South_South describes exchanges that happen beneath the radar of colonial perception, where familiar European interfaces start to blur. Africa is mainly at the center of attention: in the east of the continent, Taraab music developed through a blend of Indian and Arab influences. West Africa enjoys fruitful exchanges with the Caribbean, leading, for example, to the Champeta style in Colombia. Rumba made its way from Central Africa to Cuba, then back to Africa and now has its creative center in East Africa. Last but not least, Palenque and Garifuna represent the cultures of former slaves from Colombia and Central America.

Wassermusik 2012 also offers space for invented or dreamed-up connections, such as the London-born intra-Caribbean Ska Cubano or the West Africa project of the Indian-Canadian singer Kiran Ahluwahlia. Musical highlights are performances by Totó La Momposina, Eddie Palmieri and Quantic´s “Ondatropica” Live feat. Frente Cumbiero amongst others.

As ever, the festival is not limited to music, but also features feature films, music documentaries and other documentary films. The mix is rounded off with dicussions and artist talks. The festival opens today and runs until August 11th. Catch the whole program here.
