African Community Awards: African Community in Germany Awards (2022) Freak De L’Afrique has been nominated for the Best African Event Organiser in Germany Award at the AFRONEWS – Ortel Mobile African Community in Germany Awards 2022.
Who is Freak De L’Afrique?
Freak De L’Afrique is a Berlin-based collective of DJs, MCs, Dancers & event managers who have a common passion for Africa’s modern club sounds.
The movement started in 2012 when the first members of the collective threw their first party named Afro Heat at the legendary Cookies nightclub. Over the following years more and more members joined the group playing national and international gigs throughout Europe and Africa.
Freak De L’Afrique hosts some of Germany’s biggest club nights such as Cirque de l’Afrique, Black Paper, Bantu’s Diary & The Afro House Xperience.
The motivation to create events comes from their early experiences in Berlin’s nightlife. Extensive discrimination due to their skin colour at club doors and hardly any offers of modern African music led them to the decision in 2012 that it was time to create a party dedicated to African cultures and music styles and to welcome people of all backgrounds and identities.
Beginning with the party series ‘Afro Heat’ at the then Cookies Club in Friedrichstraße, the first evening was a great success with 700 guests. Since then, Freak De L’Afrique have brought their parties, together with their diverse and multicultural audience, to most of Berlin’s clubs, including Prince Charles, Yaam, old and new Festsaal Kreuzberg, Gretchen, Postbahnhof, Bricks, Metropol, Spindler & Klatt, St Georg, Badehaus, Weekend, Alte Münze, Bii Nuu, Avenue, Haubentaucher and many more.
They have performed in different countries such as Ghana, Angola, Senegal, Kenya, Mozambique, Madagascar, Rwanda, Tanzania, Spain, Switzerland, Czech Republic, United Kingdom.
Freak De L’Afrique were booked by the Goethe Institute for an East Africa tour through five countries (Mozambique, Kenya, Madagascar, Rwanda & Tanzania) in 2019. Besides their performances, they also held workshops with East African music artists and produced songs together. With Wena! J.A.M.E they recently created the first stage show focused on African music culture.
