Summer Solstice Global Rave (Blanchard De Plaizir & Magic Shaman) at HOME Manchester, Manchester, 21 June 2019, from £5.00 - Book now

How better to close the 2019 Horizons Festival than with a Summer Solstice Global Rave. From the Democratic Republic of Congo to Iran, HOME’s Theatre 2 space will be transformed into a global nightclub for this two-hour event.

As the sun sets on the festival, Blanchard de Plaizir and Magic Shamen will both make their HOME debut.

Blanchard de Plaizir brings Soukouss, a unique dance form from the Democratic Republic of Congo, fusing African and Latin rhythms. Soukouss has long been popular on the African continent in its traditional form, which was introduced to Europe back in the 1980s by the likes of Kanda Bongo Man, Papa Wemba and Awilo Longomba. In his new offering, Blanchard de Plaizir slams the genre right up to date, throwing his own brand of African Salsa and Zouk into the mix.

Blanchard de Plaizir will bring Soukouss – a unique dance form from the Democratic Republic of Congo – which fuses African and Latin rhythms. While Magic Shamen, inspired by his travel as a refugee from Iran, through Greece to the UK with a passion for Psy-Trance, will deliver a psychedelic set.

Adding to the party atmosphere, Irfan Rainy will be spinning the decks in the café bar until late.
