from Alternate African Reality – Electronic, electroacoustic and experimental music from Africa and the diaspora, released January 29, 2020
Hibotep (Samalia-Ethiopia)

Hibo Elmi is of Somali ancestry. Born and raised in Ethiopia, she currently lives in Kampala, Uganda, where she moved to reconnect with her twin sister, Hoden, also a DJ who goes by the name Houdini.
A walking, breathing example of the diversity of Kampala’s arts and culture scene, Hibo Elmi is, amongst other things, a DJ, filmmaker, fashion designer, installation artist, rapper and producer. A self described cultural nomad, her one rule is that rules are there for breaking; a philosophy that extends to her DJ sets where, trap, hip-hop, house and genres such as Kenya’s Taraab or Morocco’s Gnawa, collide to create a vibrant contemporary collage. Already featured on Boiler Room and NTS’ coverage of the ever influential Nyege Nyege Tapes festival, she was also personally invited to Berlin’s Forecast Festival by Holly Herndon, where she performed under her ‘poetic terrorism’ alias Ninjabi. Her set at Sónar promises to surprise, thrill and provoke in equal measure.
