Chino Amobi (US)
Producer Chino Amobi is one of the most uncompromising and visionary artists in the experimental hip-hop today.
The musical expression is a mix of electronic club music, hip-hop, R&B, noise, ‘80s rock and techno which can be experienced on the artists acclaimed debut album ‘Paradiso’ released in May, 2017. The title – Paradiso – is in contrast to the content on the album and is a lyrical and political reflection on everyday violence and racial issues.
With Nigerian parents and based in Virginia, USA, Chino Amobi – alongside his counterparts, Congolese-Belgian, Nkisi, and Portuguese-South African, Angel Ho – forms NON: a collective of African artists using sound as their primary media to articulate the visible and invisible structures that create binaries in society, and in turn distribute power.
