Sorah from Berlin brings raw rap with a strong political message to the stage in English, French, and German. In her own mix of „in your face rap“, double-time flows, dancy beats to drill, and souly vibes, she raps and sings against capitalism, racism, sexism, and all forms of oppression.
In songs like „Fists High!“, Sorah expresses the anger with a strong voice and fat flow, encouraging women*, queers, and BIPoC to continue their fights. Sorah’s stage is the street: she is always present at events and demonstrations for feminist goals, against police violence and oppression, supporting self-organization and resistance from below.
In mid-March, Sorah released her first EP „Straight from the Gut“.

Burakete is one of the most popular and inspiring voices of Turkish and diasporic music and pop culture in Germany.
In addition to club formats such as süperdisko, Burakete has organized other transcultural and post-migrant formats such as the Turkish Delicacies Festival, concerts, exhibitions or backgammon tournaments and BBQ parties for over 15 years. Always a place that invites more cultural diversity and offers space for exchange, getting to know each other and experiencing together. The flagship is the süperdisko party series – it reflects the thoughts of cultural diversity as well as a post-migrant society on the dance floor, when Anatolian DiskoFolk, Middle Eastern Funk or Anadolu Pop vinyl rarities, dug out from Turkish junk and record stores merge with beats and electronic sounds.
Burakete not only enriches the cultural and club scene as an organizer – he has also been on the decks as a DJ for 15 years. His unmistakable style wanders between space, time and genre. Sounds buried behind clichés harmonize with club music to create a refreshing dance experience.
