Afrorack

Afrorack has been played on NTS in shows including Peking Spring w/ Jon K, featured first on 14 January 2022. Songs played include African Drum Machine, Osc and Why Serious?.

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…
