Sónar by Day - SonarVillage by Estrella Damm
A fan of rap and reggae music, French dj & producer Hugo Douster has always looked for the mutations those styles gave birth to, mixing themselves with traditional rhythms from all around the world. With the King Doudou project he looks for the common tie between Latino-American dembow, Ivorian coupé décalé, southern US rap or Brazilian baile funk. His dj sets takes us from one continent to another, looking for groundbreaking new styles of music emerging from the modern world. He is also known to have lent his production skills to one of today's rising stars, Bad Gyal, having produced the Catalan's hit single "Fever" last year. Using this worldwide musical map as a guide, King Doudou intends to turn SonarVillage upside down with a powerful visual DJ set.
This show is hosted in collaboration with the Nuits Sonores festival as part of the We Are Europe program.
