NKISI

← BACK TO HOME

Melika, alias Nkisi, makes a statement with her music, but also nurtures, inspires, comforts, and energises, creating an infinity of evolving non-conforming possibilities for her creative pursuits. She established herself in London’s underground scene via her vivid club-fuelled tracks, demanding full attention with exhilarating energy when heard. Her music evoking references from gabber, doomcore and African club, to the sonic spirals of sci-fi and 1970s Italian horror films. In 2015, NON WORLDWIDE was founded with her peers Chino Amobi and Angel-Ho, a collective and label focused on uncompromised music from across Africa and the diaspora, “who use sound as their primary media, to articulate the visible and invisible structures that create binaries in society, and in turn distribute power.” Nkisi’s music and artistic projects are intimate, her inspirations ever-layered in her productions yet with a careful conscious to harmonise each indistinct thread.
