SENSA Drone Day 2023

Sat May 27, 11:00 - Sat May 27, 23:45

The Obscene Parrot


From Indian raga to LaMonte Young's Dream House, the didgeridoo to Pauline Oliveros and Kali Malone, the water organ of Ancient Greece to the hydrophones of Tomoko Sauvage, the creation of sonorous vibrations that fold space and time has been with us for millennia – a soundscape for deep inner journeys and moments of collective transcendence. That's why, every year, we gather together to make a drone together that stretches around the world.

Join SENSA, the Southern African Network for Sonic Exploration, on the 27th of May to celebrate Drone Day (, featuring live sonic immersions from Aragorn23, Chantelle Gray, hAshtAgblAck.n.o.i.s.e, Kamil Adam Hassim, Mntana Wexhwele/IMAN, Monomort, Nonentia, Strage (Drone set), Sylvestre Kabassidi, and Thylasine, as well as streamed drones from a wide range of Southern African contributors.
