From Europe, with a philm

I spent seventy days in Europe this summer as a tourist and performer. It was a beautiful and inspiring experience is so many ways. I visited Germany, France and Belgium as part of the Alkeymie: Europe Solo Tour in which I shared a few pieces of me through my art. I will share more details about this in a few weeks.

While I was there, I wanted to hear from my fellow Africans on the ground what it is to live in Europe and why it’s such a big deal. So with my phone, I made a philm. You’ll understand what it is when you watch. Turn on the captions for subtitles.

From Weimar with a bulb

19th – 21st June 2019 is going to be a time to remember in the history of global conversations on culture. More than 70 nationalities gathered in a cultural symposium, organized by the Goethe Institut, to reflect, discuss, present and experiment on the future of us in terms of culture, politics, economy, and all other aspects of life that we can imagine.

From Berlin with a big win

Twenty days have never been so short, so rich in experience! Berlin has unlocked so many new senses in my being like in a game, you know? Because I felt like I was in an adventure Gameboy play. Berlin is fascinating. The people are respectful and that is great! The bonus for me was meeting various artists from across the world, going to inspiring cultural events and enjoying the amazing taste of Düners yum yum yum!!

Alkeymie – The Private Shows

On 11.11 at 11:11 this year, I released my most recent music project Alkeymie – The Slamtape. Since it’s too early to talk about it, I will let you dive into it. It’s only going to take your breath away for 22 minutes. You’ll be lively after 😉

Now that you have listened, may I suggest another way to experience the music? My idea is simple: You invite family and friends (you pick a number, as long as we’re comfortable) in your sitting room and I will bring my sound/lighting/props, and before you know it, it’s showtime baby!!

I had listed a number of packages [before this edit] but I’ve come to realize that it may be too soon. So for now, I will ask for a minimum fee to cover basic needs then collect donations at the show if you don’t mind, please.

Email for bookings ericonekey@gmail.com and I’ll get back to you in less than 12 hours. More about my performances HERE

From Bagamoyo, with so much soul

A week ago I learned a new word – Bagamoyo. It means “where you leave your soul.” Yesterday I toured was in Bagamoyo and had the priviledge of touring the small town that served as a slave port for slaves rounded across the East Coast of Africa by slave traders and colonial powers. From Bagamoyo, these slaves were either shipped to Arabic countries, Persia, India, South Africa, Reunion, Mauritius to work on various plantations till the end of the 19th century. It is said that about 1.5 million slaves walked on the shores of Bagamoyo. Continue reading “From Bagamoyo, with so much soul”
