Biography

Former guitarist Brian Bamanya, a.k.a. Afrorack, built Africa’s first DIY modular synthesizer, in Uganda. In the spring of 2018 he began a patient observation of the Ugandan capital’s computer repair shops, relying upon tutorials and a strong penchant for hacking, he eventually found the right combination. A huge spring reverb, old cables, recycled electronic components acting as an oscillator… and six months later, the beast was operational.

Bamanya mostly improvises his sets. His approach is empirical and he lets “the machine dictate its own law”. Although his acid-house stems from a common format, Bamanya says that he has been experimenting with a ton of different ideas: live jamming with traditional musicians, blending acholi or baxiga rhythms, etc. He foresees that the next revolution in electronic music will take place in Africa.
