Making Beats in Congo

There’s a lot going on in the Democratic Republic of Congo right now. The eastern city of Goma was recently overthrown by a rebel insurgency - the latest episode of a conflict mineral fueled beef, which has plagued the region for two decades. But here at Blackademics we’ve got another story to tell - a story about youth, technology and beats. This summer, I traveled to Goma, Congo with my colleague Apple Juice Kid to build an electronic music production studio, called Beat Making Lab. After two intensive weeks of instruction, our students produced some incredible work. Get a glimpse of it here and stay tuned for more!
