Benbakan Heat | DJ Diaki

With DJ Diaki

DJ Diaki’s hard thumping live balani show is the quintessential African rave sound, the one that can wake even the dead, drawing comparisons to shangaan, singeli and acholitronix as well as drum & bass and footwork. DJ Diaki’s style of balani show is a live performance using a laptop, mic and drum machines. With influences of coupe decalé and soukous, Diaki delivers an atomic blend of traditional balani electrified with all the West African cadence!
