UPcoming shows & events

"DABREVWANZ [the brave ones] is a brand new series of live performances bringing to the spotlight emerging brave voices that refuse to be silenced in the name of culture. They must be heard to grow. In this first edition, I'm bringing to the stage some talents that will make you go "OMG they can say that?" Not just say, they live that! So get in the mood already for real connections, live music, soothing poetry, moody rap and party hard with DJ Lynduh dropping various mixes of afro/electro/tecno/drum&bass etc." ~1key

LATEST PROJECTS

Tour de Contrôle is a solo musical performance created and performed by 1key as an expression of self elevation and liberation from societal prejudice where different is mistaken for crazy. In this crafty and poetic performance, the audience plunges into the lyrical and musical worlds that have become the artist's home. The artist deals with topics such as power dynamics, de-colonization, social justice, freedom of expression, self-awareness, technology, love, sex... 

Every now and then 1key grabs his electric guitar and combining with drum loops, he cooks up beats on the spot on which he rhymes - giving the audience access to how the magic is done.

La vwa is an EP inspired by the many travels I have been on for the last four years. It's the beautiful encounters, the struggle, the joy, the love of friends and strangers that I never expected, the courage to do what I love against all odds. Language: French | Duration: 22min
